October muzzleloader hunting in Kentucky, North American Whitetail's Pat Hogan is down to the last hour of daylight in the short two-day hunt.
He's hunting a cut cornfield and spots a dandy buck working its way along the timber. The buck is well within muzzleloader distance but trying to coordinate efforts with his cameraman proves to be a bit more difficult.
When it comes to October muzzleloader hunting, evening hunts over established food sources are generally most productive. But it's still fairly early in the season and the woods are still in full foliage and deer, particularly mature bucks, are likely still on summer feeding patterns.
That's exactly what this buck is doing and Pat knows he doesn't have long before the buck feeds out of range and his hunt comes to a close.
Check out the video to see how the hunt unfolds.
