November 3: Adam Wainwright

November was here and Louie and I were headed south. Yes, believe it or not we were going to Georgia for the rut! Even though we both had tags for Illinois and Louie had an Iowa tag we were on our way to film Adam and his wife in the Peach state! Our plans had been changed about a week prior when Adam called saying he had a great farm to hunt in his home state. After we saw the pics of the bucks on the hit-list we knew we had made the right decision.

On the 3rd day of our hunt , we had a great encounter with a big mature 9 pt but he stayed about 80 yards from our set. About 3 hours later , Adam and I were relaxing as it had warmed up some and he actually was sending a text message when I heard a twig snap and looked down and a shooter buck was 40 yards and coming straight for our tree! I told Adam to get ready and by that time the buck was at 10 yds and getting past our set. He finally stopped at about 30 yds and Adam made a great shot on this big mature 7 pt buck! We were both elated and just couldn't believe what had just happened in a matter of seconds! You just never know during the rut! It had proven to be a great trip for Team Wainwright as later that evening Adam's wife Jenny connected on her first ever deer with a nice Georgia buck!  -Lance Chapman
