  • 9 point killed in Chatham Co. opening day.

    September 11 at 9:50pm

    Just over 6 months after having a double lung transplant and a by-pass on his heart, Jim Muehlbach was able to put an arrow in this giant Chatham County 6 point. After getting trail cam pictures for several weeks, the buck made the mistake of showing himself in daylight. The big six came into range while tending to a scrape at about 4:30 in the afternoon, on December 3rd. Jim was able to get a quartering away shot on the deer at nearly 40yards, with his crossbow. The shot placement was perfect and the 125 grain rage broad head put the deer down within 100 yards. Jim's son, 12 year old granddaughter and 4 year old granddaughter were able to be there to help track and recover the deer. The buck is being mounted by Andy Speer's Taxidermy, in Troy N.C.

    Killed this buck Sunday afternoon (10-18-15). He came into range pushing a large group of does. I was hunting an oak ridge with a fresh rub line running through the middle. After hearing deer running through the woods all around me I started seeing does appear one by one. Finally after counting 7 or 8 does I caught a glimpse of his rack about 45 yards out. He left the does alone and gradually grazed closer toward me coming within about 35 yards, but did not giving me a clear shot. One of the does got down wind from my stand and must have caught my scent and snorted. The buck jumped, but didn't spook. He calmed back down and took a couple more steps into a small clearing allowing me to thread my arrow between some limbs. The shot double lunged him and he only ran about 40 yards before crashing. I also managed to get the whole thing on video. It has been an awesome season for me, I am blessed.

    This is a full velvet 8 point I killed opening morning (09-12-15) in Chatham County. The deer came in the first few minutes of shooting light and offered me a broad side shot, at about 18 yards. There were several other deer around me, so I had to be smooth coming to full draw. The shot felt good as I released it and made a loud crack when the arrow struck him. I got down and found my arrow about 40 yards from where I originally shot him. I wasn't finding much blood, so I decided to back out and give him some time. I called a few buddies to help look for him and we went back in a couple hours later. After a few more minutes of not find much blood we called Arron Honeycutt. Arron is local Taxidermist, who has a beagle recovery dog. The dog tracked hard to a thick patch of briars. I was trying to find a path to get around the briars, when I looked up and saw his white belly shining through some brush. He hadn't run much more than 200 yards. This was one of the few deer I have killed that didn't have ground shrinkage when I put my hands on him.

    Thanks. I'm actually sitting in a double set with Jason now. I hope to see Goofy in person tonight and maybe get some video footage.
