Whitetail News Roundup

Deaf Hunter Arrows Iowa Booner
It’s not unusual for big bucks to slip into bow range unheard. In fact, they don’t approach any other way for Daniel Myers of Sioux City, Iowa, who arrowed a 182 7/8-inch 14-pointer this fall. Myers, you see, is deaf.
From the Sioux City Journal:
In sign language, Myers uses his hands to show "horns" atop his head. He then wipes his chin and finishes the statement with a sign of thumb and pinkie outstretched.
"Buck. Best. Ever," his daughter Jenny Christophersen interprets. "He's hunted for 20 years and this is the best he's gotten. He couldn't wait to see how it scored. It's better than he thought."
