Bessie arrowed this 9-point on November 7th at 6:00pm with her crossbow. The deer was an 11-point at the start of the season but due to his recent sparring with other bucks he broke off a couple of tines. The deer weight was 150 lbs and has a 17¬Ē spread. Aiken county. Her daughter¬ís first buck is on here also (Jessie 7-point), these girls are deadly and I am very proud of them both.
Jessie made a perfect shot on her first deer and he dropped in his tracks! Way to go Jess! Aiken county, shot with a 22-250 model 70, the same gun that I took my first deer with 25 years ago. She is 11 years old and took this deer on the morning of October 26.
I have been hunting this buck for a few weeks. I could tell that he was a big body deer with a tall rack 7-point, but I didnt know that he was this big. He weighed in at 202 lbs. Making him my biggest archery kill and my heaviest deer to this day. It was a hunt that I will never forget. I could tell how big he was in person when he came out at 7:40pm at 18 yards. I had a little trouble finding my peep, but when I did the arrow smacked him and he jumped up with a big mule kick with both legs. He gave me that feeling back that I have been chasing, it was a very good hunting experience for me. 10/14/2013
Been watching him for over a month on the trail camera and all of the pictures were at night. He finally stepped out at 8:30 am on october 8. He was more impressive on the ground than on the camera! 18' spread and he weighed 197 lbs. He is a very old buck!
Big body eight point! Was moving at night only until october 8. He got caught in the daylight at 8:30am and payed the ultimate price!
October 20 was an interesting hunt for me. It was the last hour of daylight and was watching a smaller younger eight point chasing does around the field. I heard something about 150yds away and when I looked over a tree was swinging back and forth with a buck rubbing on it. The small buck went running over to it and stopped about ten yards from it and then turned and started running with the older buck in pursuit. The difference in the body size was clear. Shot my 190lbs eight point at about 100yds.
First ten point for me.
Got a big ten point this am. My personal best.
