This week I'm back in my old stomping grounds of South Dakota archery hunting rutting whitetails. One of my good friends from Wyoming was over here the week prior and had a close encounter with a giant that he figured would come close to the state archery record. I'm wishing for that, but hoping for a chance at a 140-class buck in reality.
Since I'm hunting agricultural ground my strategy isn't about food, but more on travel routes and water holes to quench the thirst of rutting bucks. I'll be hunting ground blinds and treestands, plus utilizing a decoy to bring bucks in a bit closer for a sure shot.
I'll keep you posted from the heartland and I'm hoping the pheasants leave me alone just long enough to arrow a corn-fed buck.
If this is a corn maze I'm lost already.
