Jeff Booth almost didn’t take his bow with him (last) Wednesday.

He was planning to drive up from his Broken Arrow home to his hunting lease in northeast Oklahoma to just put up a camera near a deer stand. He figured the chances of killing a nice buck on the second day of archery season in 90-plus degree weather were remote at best.

“I have never killed a good deer in October,” said Booth.

Booth had a change of heart, however, and grabbed his bow at the last minute. He decided if he was going to drive all that way, he might as well take his bow and sit in the deer stand for a while.

He is sure glad he did. Booth arrowed a non-typical buck…that will likely measure more than 200 inches when it is green scored this week.
