I must have hunted my food plot a half dozen times over the course of this season and only saw one doe, until this morning.

Shot a nice, 14-point, Houston County buck around 7:45 when he came walking just a short distance behind a barely legal four-point. With the season drawing to a close, I decided to sweeten the pot and started hand corning the opposite end of the plot from my ground blind. It's the point at which deer have always preferred to enter the plot.

IMO, a noticeable reduction in hunting pressure on surrounding properties, combined with food sources becoming more scarce, encouraged deer to begin feeding again in daylight.

Photo posted shortly.

Shooting distance: About 90 yards
Rifle and ammo: Remington 700 ADL .270, Federal Fusion 130 gr.
Setup: Doghouse ground blind with inexpensive (Academy) shooting stick

As long as there is legal shooting light left, stay after them.

Man that's a great buck. I've always wanted one with split tines like that.

All the comments are very much appreciated.

With this being so late in the season, just wanted to encourage those who still need to fill a tag to stay diligent to the end.
