Man you just pumped me up even more I cant wait for the next two weeks to roll by so I can get in the stand. What an encounter you had. if I were youI would stick that stand out for a couple more nights, if you have the same pattern happen where they come out on the far side and don't get to you in time it's time to move. As long as you can keep the wind in your favor get on him. Good luck, hope to see the pics!

If the wind will allow you hunt the trail the stud is using to enter the field, I would make a quick move (climber?). Daylight is only going to get more limited, so moving to their entry location might be the only way to get a pin on him with shooting light left. Good luck!

I don't have a climber, but there is a perfect natural ground blind on that side of the field. It would take no more than 5 minutes to cut a few shooting lanes and get settled in and they wouldn't know I was there.
