Loc: Watauga, TX / Hunt - Eastland
Deer hunting in Eastland County has been good but with no pictures of the big boys eating at the feeders in a few weeks had me change my strategy.
The mature bucks have been on the move sent checking the outskirts of the feeders but using the brush as a buffer between my tower stands and them.
On Monday November 7th I strategically relocated one of my platform stands equipped with a popup deep in the brush so that I could watch where three major game trails intersect.
My strategy paid off at 5PM on Wednesday November 9th when this big boy decided to use one of the major game trails.

That's a stud buck right there, sir. Gotta love it that you adjusted your strategy and it paid off for you. I always find it funny when hunters complain that bucks are not coming to their feeders, but they continue to go back and hunt over them and they somehow expect different results. Congrats on a fine buck and for not be married to a hunting strategy that wasn't producing big bucks. up
