Ohio Freak Buck: Split-Beam, Drops, 157!

Yesterday the Maryland 4-beam, today an Ohio freak! Two dream bucks with as much character as you will ever see. Thanks to Tim Fisher for sending this blog about his hunt:

Upon hearing of a cold front passing on Friday October 21, I decided to take the day off work to hunt. Using a bleating can and soft grunts all day, I saw 3 does on 2 different sequences, and they all seemed interested in the sounds coming from my tree.

A light breeze calmed to almost nothing when I spotted my buck at 50 yards, walking straight toward me. He stopped at 40 yards to work a scrape and trash a licking branch—right on top of where I have entered and exited the woods all season! He sniffed the air and knew something wasn't quite right, and he exited into the edge of the standing corn. I thought I'd never see him if he kept his course.

Lucky for me, he quartered the field edge and came toward me. Once the buck was behind a tree, I drew my bow and aimed at my 30-yard mark I had ranged earlier. When he stepped into the lane I let loose my double-lung/heart grazing shot.

I couldn't believe the double drop tines and split main beam when I got up to him! A 210-pound Brown County, Ohio deer that gross-scored 157 1/2 for my biggest bow kill to date.

No fences, no trail cam pictures, just light scouting and old-fashioned hunting and calling  101.—Thanks, Tim

I put that last line in bold, read it again. Awesome Tim! Hot in Ohio right now. comment
