    Story goes like this...

    I was going to hunt a powerline on the north side of a hill that connects to our property hoping the south wind would't be bad, but I was wrong. After about 20 minutes in the stand, I decided to head back into the woods and hunt a lock-on stand about 100yds from the powerline. I sat there until I couldn't see anymore (or so I thought) and climbed down. I walked back out to the four-wheeler trail where I'd walk back out to the main trail. While heading back out to the main trail, I heard something walking through the woods. I knew whatever it was had a definite pace (no squirrel), so I thought I better stop to check it out. Sure enough, there he was, but I couldn't tell that it was a buck with my bare eyes (almost dark at this point), so I scoped him, and saw a large fork. I knew then that he was legal, so I waited until he crossed an opening about 50-60 yds from me. I had to get him to stop, so I did my best moo-bleat imitation with my mouth. He stopped and looked right at me. Here's the result.
