I got lucky first, shooting this 4-1/2 year old buck as he left a small clover food plot enroute to a larger field of turnips. The buck is a main-frame 10-point with several sticker points. His rack was heavy and, in my kids’ words, “gnarly.” What a great start to my season!

Travis’ buck is an impressive animal indeed! The 3-1/2 year old wore a perfect 10-point rack that boasted 13” G-3’s. Travis had 30 minutes of shooting light left in his hunt when this beautiful buck walked past his stand, intent on reaching a nearby food plot. And Travis proved again that perfect shot placement and a sharp broadhead is a lethal combination; his buck traveled less than 20 yards before dying. Congrats on a super buck and great kill, Travis!
