Dropped a hog today!

Postby Marc Anthony » Thu Nov 05, 2009 11:55 am

Well, a midday hunt proved to be the key in bringing this ole' boy to his knees. The very same buck I missed last week when my arrow hit a metal ladder stand, wasn't so lucky today. He was following a doe and his big brother wasn't to far behind but I had to take him out as he would have busted me within a minute or so. The rut is really on here in IL.

Good luck to all!

Thanks to all for the congrats!

His big brother was about 165"-170" and full of mass. As tempting as it was, I had to let him go or I would have blown it. The deer in the picture above scores about 160" as a basic 6X5 with 5 stickers.

Again, good luck to all!

What did he weigh?

He weighed about 240 pounds dressed. If he had lived another 2 weeks, he would have most likely dropped 20 pounds or so during the rut.

Congrats, Marc! You were on the ground, I assume?
