This was not my strategy.Two friends and I were hunting turkeys on a wooded hillside.One hunter used the call and two of us spread out to watch.It was also a deer scouting trip in early November.I was sitting on the ground against a tree between two large tree roots facing downhill.A brushy area was 50 yards below me.The sun was warming the leaves as I slid down into a reclining position and dosed off.I awoke to see a spike buck following a doe out of the brush.They mated there and a bigger buck chased the spike away and chased the doe into the brush.Later a third buck followed another doe over the hill.My buddy returned to that spot in rifle season with his two teenage sons.One of them took his first buck there.A six point.
