This buck came out across a cut cornfield (way out of bow range) and he was not responsive to calls. Bob was on the camera and could not see him initially. Once it became obvious he was headed back into the woods, he pulled the camera and shot a few seconds of freehand. We apologize in advance for the footage quality but wanted to give you a peak. — Jeff French
Male dog, about 38.5lbs.

First stand on the second day of season, we set up on this overgrown brushy gut with Jerrod upwind calling across the field down into the thick. Eric and Gaugler set up across the field with a wide view of any dogs popping out and trying to circle down wind. To our surprise, one popped out 30 yards away and began b-lining for the calls. This middle-aged dog took about 10minutes to come in (surprisingly long for the given conditions). He was shot with a Remington .22-250 at roughly 30 yards.
