My dream buck, double drops on a massive main-frame 8. Michael Morgan shot the giant with his bow last Nov. 6 on leased land in Kansas. North American Whitetail has the story. Man, what a beast. My obsession for a dropper hasn’t waned, but has only gotten stronger, though I fear I’ll never get one.
Hi Mike: I shot this deer in Calvert County, Maryland one evening last October. It is the biggest buck I have killed to date, and to get it with the bow makes it more special. I shot him on a 25-acre parcel that I lease from a friend of mine. He came in around 6 pm, walking right down a trail toward me. He turned slightly behind some cover at 10 yards and I drew my bow. Right before I got ready to release the arrow he looked up and busted me! Not sure if he heard me or saw my movement, but he took off across the creek and stopped on the other side, perfectly broadside, next to [...]
Kyle Danflous, whose son, Devin, shot a 200-class giant with a 20-gauge shotgun in 2011, tells us about the big buck he killed with his bow last fall: Hey Mike: On the morning of Oct. 20th I slipped into my blind around 6:45, a good 45 minutes before legal shooting time here in Ohio. It was rainy with a good overcast, so conditions were actually favorable. I hadn’t seen a thing until this guy came in at 7:45. I’m certain he was cruising for does. He came by in a light prance, and when he neared bow range I gave a soft grunt. He stopped at 15 yards, and I released the arrow. I knew I made a good shot, because I [...]
I saw this on Facebook. Cool or weird? Or both?
Look what longtime BIG DEER blogger Vinnie got on one of his cameras: Here is something you don’t get on your trail cam every day…a FL panther! I wish I would have got his or her head in the picture though. Very, very rare. Odds on getting one on camera, especially in daytime? Just doesn’t happen very often. Rare is an understatement, I’d say astronomical. According to Wikipedia, in 2011 there were but an estimated 100 to 160 Florida panthers living in the wild.
