First of all I would like to send out a big thanks for the votes and great comments. Congratulations to everyone in the contest for taking some really great bucks. I want to thank my son for talking me into entering my deer and my wife for allowing me to hunt. . . ALOT!!!
About the hunt - I mainly hunt with compound bow, and I saw this buck one time during the rut chasing some does, but I never go the opportunity for a shot. I did not see him again until the 2nd weekend of gun season, Saturday Dec. 15. I was hunting by myself on private property, and had been sitting in a blind since about 1:00 PM. It was a great day to be in the woods. The snow was really coming down, and I watched several does chase eachother and jumping around. I was not sure if I was going to be able to get out of the property drive, due to the fact that I had to get my truck up a large hill, so I decided to get out of the blind at about 4:30 and head to the truck. I walked a narrow brushy lane that came out into a cut corn field, and approached the cornfield very slowly, because this was where I saw this buck before. As I came up to the edge of the cornfield I saw movement through the thick brush on the edge of the field about 25yds away. I could see it was a big deer, but until it lifted its head I did not know it was the one I had seen in bow season. Fortunately I saw him before he saw me, and I was able to raise my gun, aim, and fire. After I shot, the deer took off like I had never even touched him. I shot twice more as he ran across the corn field, but missed both times. I stood there in disbelief, watching him run, wondering if I hit him or not. As he ran I noticed him getting lower and lower to the ground, and then he cartwheeled end-over-end in the snow about 80yds away.
About the Deer - Harvested Saturday Dec. 15th, 2007, in Portage County (the same county that "The Hole in the Horn" buck was killed) with shotgun. He has 12 scorable points with three broken forks. The buck has a rough green score of 163+ and has a 19 1/2 inch inside spread. Last year I thought my unicorn buck would be hard for me to beat, but the good Lord blessed me again, and I am very thankful.
