Big smile and a big buck

by Randy Allen

Yes it was really cold opening weekend of the gun season, but look what came walking in?  

This is Austin who shot thei 8 point buck on Sunday, Nov. 24th around 10:00 AM in Beecher.  He went out at 5:30 and at 9:50, still hadn't seen a deer.

He missed a spike buck and he's glad he missed.  A short time later this 8 point buck came into range.  He weighed 170 pounds dressed out!  This is Austin's biggest deer hunting so far!  Next season he's looking for the 10 pointer.
