A giant buck has fallen in Central Massachusetts and it could be big enough to take the number one spot in the record books.
On November 14, Dan Daigle was hunting in his hometown of Rutland. It was just after 3 p.m. when Daigle began his ascent up the hemlock to his Lone Wolf hang-on 25 feet off the ground. The northeast wind would be perfect for this stand and carry his scent away from the direction he thought that the deer would approach.
Daigle is a scent freak and goes to great lengths to stay scent free—showering with scent free soap and wearing a carbon suit helped Daigle get an edge on the sharp nose of the whitetail.
