Default Dilema

I can either hunt up north where I know a very large buck exists, It's on an oak ridge with a spruce swamp at the bottom, some hunting pressure,2 hour drive from home. Or a a place closer to home (only 45min.) with an oak flat and water on three sides also a a big buck in the area, but "lots" of hunting pressure. I will probably see some deer near home but just as many hunters and I don't want to shoot just any buck No does for me I already got one earlier in the season. If I go up north I may come home with nothing.

You already have the doe.. So I would have to go with the lesser amount of hunting pressure with the area where you know a big boy roams..

Also a less chance of getting shot!!

No such thing as coming home with nothing, quiet times spent in the woods are are just as rewarding. I say "Go North" and maybe this trip could be the big one.
Good Luck

Going up north with no presure might just pay off
