'14 PA buck

Post  Mountainman Vic on Wed Nov 05, 2014 8:35 pm

Well it's been a little slow this season for big bucks and I had that incident a few weeks ago with my release so today I built a little confidence. I had Holly in the tree with me this morning and we had this buck come down through the laurel about 7:20. I grabbed the grunt call and grunted and then let out a few bleats and he was on the way. At first I thought he was pretty young which Holly wouldn't have cared. She still just wants to get one. When he got to a scrap about 50 yards from us, I realized this was an older deer. I really wanted Holly to shoot him but he was walking perpendicular to us and straight behind Holly with the tree right in her way. He stopped in the most wide opening I've ever had and at 24 yards to scratch his back. He quickly ended up with a lot more than an itch. I saw the arrow center punch him and he ran about 90 yards and toppled over. I was glad to be able to share the hunt with Holly.

Congrats Vic!  To bad it didn't work out for Holly to take the shot.  At least she got to see the action.  Good luck getting her on one!

Freshly married and your already taking the deer right out from under her !!!!! She should divorce you !!! Very Happy
Very nice buck Vic !!!! Its also very nice to see the size of his body for being a mountain deer !! I have taken notice since I started hunting up your way the deer are getting bigger , I think its because the old timers aren't hitting the mountains as hard and we all know most kids these days want nothing to do with the hills up there Very Happy Very Happy !!! He's about the same size of the 8 that about ran me over chasing a doe during bear season !!! I really hope most of the drag was DOWNHILL !!!! He's a stud !!
