    Georgia Man In Boxers Kills Buck With A Stick

    By Dave Hurteau

    Joel Borden . . . said the deer stumbled into his yard with a gunshot wound in its neck Saturday morning. . . .

    "I killed it with a stick," Borden said. "My friends are making a big deal of it because I didn't have anything on but boxers and a pair of sandals."

    Old Guys Know How To Hunt

    By Scott Bestul

    You don’t recognize the man in today’s photo. That’s my dad. He turned 80 a month ago, and I did not have to dress him up for this picture. I took it a couple minutes before we left for an afternoon bowhunt together. Temps at dusk would hover around zero, and it was windy to boot. Pops didn’t even question going when I called him that afternoon. He just dug into his closet and pulled out some extra layers.

    Merry Christmas from Whitetail 365!

    By Scott Bestul

    I have no idea how the buck in this picture got a package tangled in his rack. Either Santa is getting sloppy, or the photo-shop guys are getting better and better!

    New Illinois Record Bow Buck?

    By Scott Bestul

    Last week, Field Notes guru Dave Hurteau did a great profile (and an exclusive, I might add) on what will likely be the Ohio state record muzzleloader buck. And just recently, another buck profiled on this site—a monster from Wisconsin—unseated last year’s “Field & Stream buck” for top honors as the largest Badger State bow-killed non-typical.

    A New Kentucky State-Record Buck?

    By Scott Bestul

    Got an email from a Buck Tracker reader with a simple request this week. Is the buck below the new Kentucky state record? I have no details beyond this fuzzy photograph and the following details; that the rumor is the buck was killed in Robertson County near Mount Olivet.

    Brit Boys Convicted Of Killing Baby Deer Escape Jail

    By Dave Hurteau

    From the Daily Mail:

    Two 17-year-old boys who kicked a fawn to death in a 'barbaric attack' escaped jail yesterday. . . .

    During their trial, the boys, from Poole, Dorset, claimed that the six-week-old deer had
    already broken its leg and that they were simply putting it out of its misery.

    But Keith Arthurs, 52, who witnessed the attack as he walked his dog in Upton Country Park, told Poole Youth Court how the boys had been 'joking and laughing' during the attack. . . .

    Not All Big Bucks Come From the Midwest

    By Scott Bestul

    My friend Tim Herald just sent me this picture of a dandy buck he’d shot recently in Oklahoma. Tim is host of the TV show “The Zone” and, in addition to being one of the few celebrities I know, is an excellent hunter. His job “forces” Tim to hunt all over the country, and the man is a big-buck magnet; one of those guys who just seems to have game run to him. If Tim wasn’t such a nice guy, I’d hate him.

    My "Tilter" Buck Comes Home

    By Scott Bestul

    Back in July, my trail cams captured a neat-looking deer. The broad-bodied buck toted a dandy 6-point right side, but his left antler was very odd. Four small points sprouted from a main beam not much larger than a yearling’s rack, and a 4-inch “kicker” point grew back toward the buck’s hindquarter. Because the antlers were so imbalanced I nicknamed the buck “Tilter.”

    Bow Hunting Gone Bloody Wrong

    By Scott Bestul

    I just received a photo yesterday, and have no way of knowing if it’s legit. Supposedly the shooter who's attached to the hand in said photo realized his arrow had fallen off the rest, but decided to shoot anyway. Obviously, one more item to add to the list of “don’t do it, just to see what happens” stuff we should all be keeping. Our online editors say I can't post the photo here, as they nearly lost their lunch looking at it and fear you would do the same. Let's just say the arrow almost made it all the way through the hand, and there's lots of splinters poking out around the entry hole.
