Nice Indiana Buck!
« on: October 26, 2006, 02:36:00 PM »
My father, a long time longbow hunter, took this buck this morning.  20 Feet away on the ground.  This monster weighted in at 209 lbs and is about 2 1/2 years old.  Unbelievable!  I seen this buck yesterday morning with his twin brother who is also a big bodied eight point but couldn't get him in for a shot. dino
 
 

Lastly, my son Josiah.  He loves deer hanging in the barn and just had to have his picture taken with this one.

This one was taken in Steuben county NE of Fox Lake just outside of Angola.  Areas around Angola produce some large deer and they are plentiful.  Yesterday I seen 8 deer in an hour and a half.  Good luck out there this weekend Mike. dino
