Your early-season scouting pinpoints a group of four bachelor bucks bedding on a hillside above an alfalfa field. Each evening, they filter down through a 100-yard-wide hardwood thicket before emerging in the alfalfa to feed—and the one that always hits the field last is the biggest buck you've ever seen. You hang a stand 50 yards from the feed near a trail that leads to a fence opening, and settle in for an evening hunt. The first buck walks past your stand out of bow range, following a shallow ditch you hadn't noticed. Minutes later, a second does the same, and you know that when one or two take a certain path and aren't spooked, the others will follow.
