Incredible deer. It is amazing that deer can be shot and live for that long even though it was a shoulder shot. Congrats on the buck

Man, trail cams, video, cross bow, helicopter... amazing what can be accomplished when the right resources come together. That's one hell of a buck!

Will this story keep some Ohio hunters from driving up to Michigan in November? (Not that they're not welcome - Michigan can certainly use their business!)

Great buck and story, but I don't know what to think about using a chopper to find a deer as far as fair chase goes. Maybe it's no different than taking a walk in the woods to scout, but it just doesn't feel right. Then again, if I had the opportunity, maybe I'd do it too.

Fantastic Buck. I'm also a bow hunter and I know how many hours it takes in the field to try to find the perfect hunting spot and the time. Looks like you did your home work. Great story and a great deer. CONGRADULATIONS

TM: Make sure you read all of the photo captions. I first thought the same thing until I read the captions. He used the heli to locate the buck after it was shot. The headline is a bit deceptive in my opinion. If you were to read just that, you could be lead to believe that the heli was used to chase down/locate the buck, then shoot it. A more fitting haedline may have been, "Ohio Crossbow Hunter Rents Helicopter to Find Downed 20-Point Monster Buck." Any way, great deer and great story. Congrats. on doing what it took to harvest that beautiful animal.

Yea I noticed corn pile also. I also noticed another pic without corn and he had over 200 pics of this deer. I would venture to say- not from the same camera . He also wrote that it was browsing towards his food plot when he SHOT IT ON VIDEO. I guess the video will tell all.

Hey guys, yes it is corn in front of my trail cam and no I am not hunting over the corn pile, Its just there to get good pictures.It is legal in Ohio and I have shot some pretty nice bucks over corn in years past. The Bugz 2 to Bonz guy is Shawn Moore, he is local to Columbus in Galloway, Ohio. I don't know his web address, but his number is 16144028935, His beatles do a really great job.Thanks for the other responder pointing out about the Hellicopter be used for recovery of the Deer.

Great buck, nice to make the extra effort to retrieve it. (Not directed to Steve)...Yes, it is legal to kill over bait in some states. "Bait and wait" is not actually hunting/searching (verb) though to alot of people. So much of what is on tv these days is only geared towards "GETTING" the biggest trophy available with technology and money doing the work for the so called "hunter". I believe the reason to use the extra tactics, (bait, cams, calls, high fences, etc.) is to hopefully, make it easier to kill a trophy. This makes "hunters" look like greedy killers to the anti-hunting crowds. Too bad alot of people don't actually put more effort/skills into actually hunting for an animal, instead of trying to get it to come to them. I wonder how many eggs the kids would find if they waited for the eggs to come to them while "Easter egg hunting".

Congratulations! I hunted a similar size animal for 5 years. He always gave me a least one shot (using a compound bow) each season. Never brought him down and then he disappeared from the area. I know what time and dedication it takes to harvest this animal. His genes will be around for a long time. Again WOW and Congrats

Wow, great deer. And great shot. I almost lost my first bow buck in a similar manner. Hie ran through a bunch of really nasty, thick brush that would be impossible to find him in. But luckely he ended up dropping right in the middle of an acces road to a neighboring field. I was real thankful for that.

Bah! Helicopters, bait, cameras. That's not hunting, I don't even know what to call it. I'd rather a fork-horn that actually required woodsman-ship to harvest. Not even worthy to be featured on a so called hunters web site.
