I scouted the area all summer. . . I searched out the best location for my tree-stand . . … I set it all up a month ahead of time . . . I trailed the herd . . . I picked out a trophy buck .. .. Two days before opening day I rechecked every aspect of the hunt . .. Everything was in place . . .. Sunday morning, I woke up at 2 am . .. . I put on my camo, loaded my pack, set out for my stand . . . This was destined to be an epic hunt . . .. As I approached my deer stand . . . . . . . I changed my mind, decided to go to church instead.
