ohio danflous award buckIn December 2011 I posted the story of an incredible buck that then 14-year-old Devin Danflous shot with a 20-gauge as the giant walked by at 15 yards. To make the hunt even sweeter, Devin’s dad, Kyle, was sitting beside him in the double stand. The Licking County monster had 21 scorable points and netted 197 1/8.

Just got this update from Devin:

Hey Mike: I recently took my buck to the Ohio Deer and Turkey Expo and entered it into the “historical non-typical class.” It won first place!

Also my dad got his big 8-point from last season scored at 146 4/8 inches, and it tied for 2nd place for “current year archery 8 point.”

Thought I’d share since a lot of hunters from Ohio have seen these bucks on your blog before. Thanks–Devin

Awesome Devin and Kyle, congrats! Keep shooting big Buckeye bucks and sharing!
