This group of bucks is hanging in a woods somewhere here in Virginia. I know the area, that right buck is going to be a shooter come bow season in October.

Good lesson here: As you watch and study trail-camera images of a buck group in late summer, study the makeup of that group (in this case a 6-point, a small 8-point and the larger 8-point shooter) because it is very likely that those bucks will keep traveling together throughout September into early October.

Then say you’re on stand on the bow opener. If you see one of those little bucks coming through the woods, stand up, grab your bow and get ready. All the bucks and the shooter are probably following, and hopefully the big boy will pass within shooting range.
