It was the opening day of Maryland’s gun season, and I had chosen a parcel of land that would be seeing a lot of hunting pressure. So I decided to find a spot where few other hunters would be likely to go. I set up on the side of a ridge, overlooking a swampy creek bottom that was surrounded by laurel thickets.
At 4:20 in the afternoon I spotted a buck stepping out of the thicket, hot on the trail of a doe. She jumped the creek, but before he had a chance to follow her I bleated once. He stopped for a couple of seconds to pinpoint the source of the bleating.
That is when I squeezed off the shot. My Lightfield slug did a great job at some 90 yards!
