Since early Sept. I have had trail cameras out scouting bucks on my family farm land in Erwin, NC on the Cape Fear river. I have been getting pictures of pretty good bucks, but for the first time this buck showed up Oct. 30th at 4:30am out of no where. Not thinking I would see him during daylight hours I got in the stand anyways that same afternoon. After seeing does and a few small bucks I had started getting my things together because there was only a few minutes of shooting light left when I looked up and seen him crossing the beanfield I was hunting when he came 150 yards of my stand and I was able to squeeze off the shot. I got down and found blood so I backed out for two hours and came back with a few friends and we found this buck within 70 yards.
