Ya I was able to rattle him in. I was actually hoping to get my buddies son on a xxl buck that was in the area. So I dropped them off glassed for about 30 minuets then headed into a cottonwood patch about a half mile away. I got on a good side hill trail with some good rubs. Started dragging a scent rag behind me and spraying every low hanging branch with ambush. Got to a nice spot where I could see about 50 yards. One quick rattling sequence, knelt down to take my pack off, glance down the trail and see a nice buck running directly to me nose on the ground. He ran into about 10-12 yards, maybe closer. Got a good frontal shot on him.  Happened so fast I could hardly believe it. Got a text from my buddy, “already? Seriously “ little luck with me that morning.

What a perfect looking buck!  So, you didn’t plan for him to come running right at you is what your saying?  :chuckle:

Unless that's a cat door I would say that it qualifies. Incredible deer.
