This is the second time my brother Ben and I have harvested bucks in the same area during the same hunt. The first time was in 2017 and we harvested two 8 points 12 minutes apart. Having little luck at our ridge spots we snuck into this creek bottom spot for the first time since scouting in October. Sitting about 3/4 mile apart, we hunted the night hunt on the 18th of November with little action. With a few mature bucks at our home ridge spot we had a tough decision to make. Go back to the ridge or give the creek another sit in the morning. We decided to head back to the creek bottom. Lucky for us we made the right decision. Ben harvested his 8 point at 7:34 AM and I harvested my 7 point at 8:33 AM
