to our offices yesterday. He arrowed the 150-inch 10-pointer the previous evening
while hunting a patch of oak woods.
“I got set up in my tree stand around 5:15 p.m.,” Adam said. “At 5:30, I grunted
three long grunts followed by a series of three short grunts. Around 5:50 p.m.,
he came down a trail behind me, and I was able to stop him at about 6 yards and made
a solid double lung shot. He went around 75 yards and piled up. I was
about 30 yards off of a third-crop hayfield and 20 yards from a corn field.
He was traveling through an area that splits the two fields and has a couple of crab
apple trees and a bunch of sumac trees.”
Congrats to Adam on one mighty fine early season whitetail!
Note: Adam’s Cuddeback photo is of the same buck from last year. The photos below
show a right-side shed found earlier this year and gives you a good idea of how much
larger this year’s antler was by comparison.
