Hey everyone, so I am fairly new to the website (which roks!!) and have found some very helpful information from hardcore hunters. I've taken up archery this year and have found it to be very exciting and frustrating at the same time. My rifle hunting skills have only carried me so far as to locate deer but other than that I've been schooled by some smart animals. I scouted and become familiar with an area close to home (SE idaho) that holds some good bucks but gets a fair amount of public pressure. One buck in particular is on the top of my "hit-list" that I've named 9-lives. He gets that name because while scouting during the summer, I watched him narrowly escape a cougar attack!! I'm not too good at scoring bucks but I imagine he would at least go 180+ (see pics, sorry not the best). So my first question to post to the forum is I had him at about 100 yds the other day but he was surrounded by 2 other bucks and 6 does. I ended up getting busted by the does, so how does one put a stalk on a buck when there are so many other eyes and ears around? Thanks in advance and great to be apart of this hardcore family.
