They will not queue up like the wolves and coyotes and elk do. They are too far apart. Then I tried attracting them 25 meters away. They come at odd times, and by the time the second one shows up, the first one is ready to go. I used urine scent to hold them, and that didn't work either. I had a group of four come one time, but dang they just bunch up too far apart. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Simplest way would be to call few of them to you from treestand and then let the call expire so they walk away, then go down and make a call about 30-40m from the treestand, in an ideal spot. The deers will quickly return and usually settle quick aswell so then don't move around which gives you the chance to move and find a good angle to take the shot. Ideally you want to land that buckshot on lung/heart area for both but if you have a male and a female standing next to each other, the males posture is higher so you might be able to shoot the female to the head/neck area while having the males lungs/heart behind that ready to receive the remaining buckshot.
A good area to attempt this mission is the northern part of the railroad where the railroad goes over the river. There's alot of rusa in the area and you can shoot down on them from the railroad from the optimal range of 30-40m when the buckshot has spred enough to hit both deers with lethal force.
