Well, my daughter Abigail continues to impress me with her growing hunting skills. We went down to Screven County, Georgia this weekend and climbed into a box stand overlooking a field on Saturday morning. At approx. 7:28 I spot a big racked buck skirting the edge of the field. He was in a hurry. I said Abigail, there's a buck! I got it to stop by bleating like a doe. She couldn't find it in the scope. He started moving again at a fast clip. I made him stop again. She was on him but was being careful about getting her crosshairs in the perfect spot. Just as she was getting ready to squeeze the trigger he turned and walked into the woods. She was disappointed to say the least. I got out my grunt call and made some aggressive grunts to try and lure him back. About 20 minutes later another buck comes out and cuts the corner of the field from the other side. She is on him and begging to shoot but I say no since he is moving. I get out the grunt call and hit it a couple of times and here he comes back across. I bleat again and he stops broadside. BOOM! He bucks and takes off for the woods. After a few minutes, we get down and track him about 50 yards into the trees. A nice 3 pointer. Abigail's first antlered buck. She was shooting her Handi Rifle in .357 mag. using 180 grain Cor- Bon bullets. I sure am proud of her.
