On day 2, everyone got up bright and early and left for the ranch at 4:00 AM, we then ate breakfast and the Heroes were taken to their hunting spots. It was a chilly 26 degrees and everyone saw plenty of deer. Hero Chad Rozinsky harvested a mature buck with his Crossbow.
On day 3, nice bucks were taken by Daniel Barnes who was using a muzzleloader and Bernie Altman who was using a shotgun. On the last day of the hunt John Drinkard harvested a nice big doe.
