We got in stand by 5:45 and had deer under us 30 minutes before shooting light. Checking the trail camera photos, we learned there was two shooters in the area. Five minutes after shooting light we had two 2-1/2 year old 8s walk right under us. William held off, knowing there was bigger deer in the area. At 7:00 both shooters showed up and the one he chose was still in velvet. He executed a perfectly place shot at 25 yards and the deer piled up within 40 yards.
