  • Rhonda's Big 9 Pointer

    My wife and I went out for a quick hunt this morning dressed for church under our camo, and this big 9 pointer came through dogging a doe at about 7:25. I had to 'nay' at him to stop him and when I did Rhonda put the arrow right on the button. The brute weighed 170 pounds and gross measured 140 inches. Rhonda was pretty thrilled, as is obvious by the big smile on her face.

    What a great buck and a great picture!! I love seeing someone take the time to take a quality picture!!! So often great bucks are just not given the respect they deserve...There is nothing wrong with a picture in the back of the truck but at least take a couple in it's natural habitat...Congrats again on a GREAT buck!

    You are the woman!
    When I grow up I want to be a deer hunter like Rhonda....lucky guy, Kenny.

    How many wall-hangers is that now?

    I'm a lucky man indeed!
    When Rhonda started hunting with me 11 years ago, I never dreamed it would ever come to this, but she has evolved into quite the huntress. I thoroughly enjoy the time we spend together on-stand or in the blinds, and I'm so happy to be able to share in the success she's been so blessed to have thus far. Since crossbows became legal archery tackle in 2010, Rhonda has bagged 6 really nice bucks and 5 does if I remember correctly. She gets up early and puts in the time, and when the moment of truth arrives, she puts the arrow right where it's supposed to go, time after time. I couldn't be more proud!

    As for me...I've evolved into more of a picture taker/purse-holder. ;) And I'm loving every minute of it! Thanks for your comments CastNBlast3.

    No, I’m the lucky one!
    I feel so blessed that my husband chose to share with me his passion for hunting! I am not an outdoorsy type of person at all, but I have really grown to enjoy deer hunting, especially with the crossbow. I was tempted to hunt by myself one evening while he was hunting out of state but, I talked myself out of it because I would really miss spending that time and any success I had with him. And truly every deer I have been fortunate enough to harvest is directly attributed to him sharing his knowledge and a WHOLE LOT of patience. I am so thankful for the time and effort he puts forth on my behalf.
