The Hughes Buck

The Hughes Buck scored 256 5/8 gross with a 249 3/8. Late Sept. I found a large scrape leading down to several smaller scrapes. Immediately I started bow hunting this large scrape but there was no activity. The next week I started putting Code Blue Doe Estros in the scrape. It got bigger and deeper, eventually showing the roots of the big trees around it. I tried to put the Code Blue Doe Estros in it every couple of days, until, finally, the opening morning of muzzle loading season, I saw my first buck out of this stand. He was the only one I needed to see.
