This buck was a fair chase taken with a crossbow in mid-ohio. Also, my first buck.

danlap82288, nice buck and welcome to the forum. We are kinda detail driven folks. ;) Where do you hunt (if you say outdoors, that's my line) what were the conditions, range, weapon, any scent lures. decoys? Solo hunt or with a group? Did it drop in it's tracks, or 400 yards away from impact? As I also use a crossbow, I expect it dropped within 50 yards. Was this on public lands, or private, You say "fair Chase" so I assume no high fences. Fixed blades or mechanicals? Details? ;)
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

Wow, that is a heck of a first buck! It may be a while before you top that one. They're out there, but you can expect to see more under that size than over it. Good luck this Fall. I hope you get a bigger buck that that one.
