    Climb for the prize

    If you were to survey any given piece of hunting property, there are areas that cry out to be hunted. A majority of the times, these areas are soon saddled with a permanent hunting stand, be it a ladder, box or other permanent fixture. A hunter may even take one or more deer from that stand the next season, or it may be one of those rare stands that produces every season. But the reason that site was chosen is because it looked good to the hunter, not because it was conducive to the deer.

But he killed his biggest, a 13-point, 150-class buck, this past Saturday, Oct. 27, when a buck he’s watched on trail cameras for years finally showed up during shooting hours and offered him a good shot with his Thompson Center Omega .50 caliber blackpowder rifle.
