10:30am I arrived at my In-laws farm for Thanksgiving. I then went out to set my ground blind and as I rounded the barn to hit the open field I saw a big buck working a scrape line right where I needed to go. I waited for the buck to get out of sight and started working my way to that far edge of the field. I set my ground blind and a doe decoy then crawled into the ground blind to set up my camera gear. I looked up across the field (approximately 700 Yards) and seen three doe feeding. The doe were looking into the woods and behold the big buck stepped out of the tree edge and started trailing the doe. I then called using a grunt call and my doe bleat. He started walking towards me and spotted my doe decoy and what seemed like an eternity he made it to 100 yards and the rest is history.
