November 2: Steve Frantz

November is here!!! Team Ozonics strikes fast on day two of the Rut Leg for our 3rd buck down for DS The Journey! We headed up to Illinois yesterday from Birmingham, AL to a new farm that we had very high expectations to hunt this year and man did those expectations ever come true! First morning in the timber was a blast and it was all over within a couple hours.
We were set up where two ridges ran parallel to each other for a mile or so and met together to funnel into a valley. We weren't in the tree long before we seen a 120" 8pt strolling down the ridge behind us and within a minute or so this Ol boy came in stiff legged and pushed away that 8. After a couple minutes or so this 10pt started making his way away from us to about 100 yards. I then pulled out the Ol trusty MAD GROWL and hit it about three times with a couple grunts mixed in, blowing it in the opposite direction from him. He couldn't stand it, he came back rushing in down wind and stopped in a ditch just behind us. We had the Ozonics running so we were covered! Well I guess that first sequence wasn't quite enough...he started heading back away again and I hit the Growl two more times. That was the ticket! He circled from behind us up on a ridge around us to about 15 yards in front of the stand and the PSE and Rage slammed him on the ground! We are excited as we still have the whole rut ahead of us and we will be back after em tomorrow.
It is time my friends! Get in a tree and stay put. Don't let these hot temps get ya down. You can't kill em If your not there!

Ya'll get after em!
