Hunters take few deer, especially mature trophy bucks, standing broadside in wide-open spaces. We probably harvest a majority of our meat locker does in open food plots out in plain sight, but not usually the bucks.
Seriously, how many nice wall-hangers have you seen outside of deep cover? During the rut, maybe, but chances are even pretty slim then, too.
Boone & Crockett record book bucks, or “Booners,” rarely expose themselves, except by accident.
