Why not celebrate a cross bow Deer?? He took a legal deer with a legal weapon. Awesome deer, great story greet to see this young man out hunting with his dad...criticizing him for using a cross bow puts you on the same page as anti Hunters

I have no problem with crossbow hunters, as long as their either elderly, like their buddy was, or physically challenged.

bounty1 is exaclty correct...crossbows are fine for the elderly or someone with a disability...that is why we are not celebrating a crossbow buck. You do not have to even try to mask any movement or hold a full draw for 30 seconds and still be steady...as the writer stated, all he had to do was adjust his scope.

You crossbow hecklers sound like a bunch of sissies. As much pressure us outdoorsman get from the government and other activist groups over our rights to hunt, we should be high-fiving this guy for an outstanding takedown with his crossbow. Grow up girls.

Well I must say I'm against crossbows for able bodied hunters , you all are miss a serious point. The crossbow that was used to kill the buck was there closest hunting partner that passed away. It was a way to honor his legacy.

Awesome crossbow kill, dont let the jealous people get you down, they just dont get it, if you would have shot him in shotgun sesason they never would have made stupid comments about a crossbow, I dont get it, to many idiots out there. Enjoy your time in the woods with your choice of weapon. Congrats on an awesome trophy. Hope you continue to stay in the woods with your crossbow.

I get tired of hearing people criticize crossbow hunters me and my dad use one. People always say it's cheating I think they're mad because they can't hit a 18 inch wide 8 pointer running at 40 yards with a compound bow and make him drop.

Holy crap DogHunter4Life... Now you're shooting at running deer with one of those things. You may have lucked out and hit that one, but how many have you missed and wounded that way? I see a lot of "tributes" and "legacy" here. One of the things I inherated from my grandpa when he died was his 30 30 Winchester. Did I take it out and use it as a tribute? No. I have it craddled in a large set of his deer antlers, hanging on the wall, along side a picture of him. Now that's a tribute. All this is is a poor excuse to use a crossbow. And sesker, you say "jealous". Jealous of what? That I haven't shot a 21 point? No I haven't. A 156 5/8" P&Y 12 point is the largest so far. Then there's Horse Calvin who calls us "sissies". You bet. It takes a real manly man to put that crossbow to his shoulder look through the scope and pull the trigger, if you can handle the kick! And I can't forget PAhunter... Thank You!

bounty1. I just read an amazing story about a hard working young man making time to hunt. I usually do not read the comments but for this one I did. I bow hunt I used to use a long bow then after breaking my hand I switched to a compound and now after not being able to hold draw for 20 seconds due to a bad surgery to repair my hand I use a crossbow. I am 24 years old and able body so if i killed a trophy would that make it less amazing? What if he did get out with a compound bow and but since he didnt have time to practice shooting it every weekend to keep a good grouping, he went out and just injured the deer and it died of infection? instead he used what he knew would make a clean kill and at the end of the day that is what is important. It was legal, a clean kill, and a mature deer.

jermounzo. That goes back to one of my earlier comments to include physically challenged. All though you might not consider it as such, it still should qualify you for a temporary disability license, which in the state I live in they're good for 5 years. I do a lot of volunteer work with the challenged and disabled, and see this license often. Again, if you carried a license like that, I'd wish you luck.

How are you going to hate on crossbow hunting? Using a gun is even easier.

Additional Info

A father and son almost quit hunting after the death of their longtime friend, even selling off hunting gear at a yard sale. But seeing this buck in their trail cam photos got their spirits up and got them back in the woods. Their reward was this 21-point, 180-inch (green score) Ohio buck. Keep clicking for more photos and the full story.
