Plenty of hunters have been able to score on waiting bucks, including Shawn James, whose 150-class buck I mentioned briefly last week. James was fishing an epic blue catfish bite on Lake Milford in central Kansas when he started getting Facebook updates from hunters who were having good success rattling in bucks. James is a passionate catch-and-release catfisherman, and he was boating 30 pounders left and right when the updates started coming in. “Buck fever set in, and I headed in, packed up my camper and went home to hunt,” James says. On morning and evening sits November 1 and 2, James managed to rattle in deer during three of the four hunts. The last was the 12 pointer shown here, which he shot at 4:10 p.m. on Sunday evening. James was still holding his rattling horns when the buck “came in on a run, with his ears laid back and his hair standing up.” It just shows that identifying—and quickly acting on—the trends in your area is so important at this time of year, when deer behavior can change quickly.
