Hi foremost Hunting!
I went out to Stockmans Farm Supply in Wilson, WI yesterday for the free official measuring they were doing. My 2010 buck scored 149 7/8 inches! I paid the money for the Pope and Young record book and the State of WI book too. I never thought I would get a deer into a record book, and he sure looks great on my wall too!
I shot this deer after a spot and stalk on Nov 13 2010 a cold wet snowing freezing rain miserable weather day. I thought I made the perfect shot on a quartering away, bolting away deer, hit it behing the shoulder a little too far but it exited in front of the opposite shoulder and left a massive blood trail in a harvested corn field. I saw that blood trail and called my cousin for a 4 wheeler and trailer to recover the deer. Little did we know it was a tracking job to last a couple hours! I saved a Google Map of the event and thought I would share it here.
During field dressing the buck I found it was hit in 1 lung and went that entire distance on 1 lung! It just goes to show that some perserverance pays off!
Here a picture of the deer in the truck.
