Helping his other son, Hunt, get his buck was a no-brainer for Reynolds. "I actually saw the buck follow a doe into the same little block of cover where I'd killed my biggest buck," he says. "So I just told Hunt to follow a fenceline that leads to that timber, and to keep his eyes open because he'd probably see them bedded in there if he took his time and stayed quiet. He was just getting close to where he should be able to see into the timber when the doe decided it was time to get up and feed in the field. The buck followed her out, and Hunt made the shot."
Getting on a big buck during the latter stages of the rut can be difficult, but as the Reynolds family has proven, staying mobile can pay off big time.
