On December 16, 2020 in Franklin County Indiana at my brother and sister-in-laws place, I hadn’t seen anything all day but it had snowed and I had a good feeling about the evening so I went back out to sit in the tree. At 5pm 2 does and 2 of their fawns from last year came across the field from my left. Both of the does gave me a shot but I had a feeling I should wait, so I did. Three of the deer went in the field behind me and two more came to me in front. One was a spike buck who came almost right under me and the doe was in front about 30 yards. I heard a grunt to my left and through some branches I saw a nice buck with a thick neck and some antlers but couldn’t see how many at that point. I let the others pass hoping to get a shot. The doe saw me and they took off but she didn’t blow. I kept looking for him but thought I may of missed my chance then he grunted again. I said, “ please God bring him to me so I can get a shot?” At that moment he started walking to me, he walked right over to a spot where I had a clear shot about 30 yards, he turned and gave me the perfect shot. I shot him right in the heart and he laid down about 6 yards away. My brother and I gutted him and put him in the general to take him to the barn where several friends were waiting to congratulate me. It was an amazing hunt and well worth the wait since 4 out of the 5 days I hunted, I saw nothing. Great memories shared with my brother.

Shot this 9 point buck in Franklin County, Indiana Sunday evening. The wind had knocked the power out so I thought sitting in a tree stand sounded like a good idea, my wife begged to differ. “King of the Hill,” as we referred to this particular deer, rose from his bed and right towards me. After I hit him, we tracked him over a mile. Then didn’t find him until the next day. I decided to take along my 4 year old son, my dad, and a good buddy, we all had a blast tracking this monster! Can’t wait to mount this guy with a matching set of his antlers from last year. Some great memories were made this season!

This was my second time hunting and first time using my new crossbow. We were in the stand for only 2 hours and shot him from 25 yards away. When we went to track him, he only got 30 yards before he dropped. He weighed in about 220 lbs. This was my first deer and he was a big 8 point buck.

This is my boyfriend Caleb Meyer. He killed this deer October 7th in Dearborn County. He told me it scored 107 3/8, looks bigger than that to me. He’s never been good at math. It came in trailing a doe “hard” he said. He shot it and it didn’t go 20!!

This is my boy Seth Jones with his first ever deer kill. He is 14 years old. It was killed with a bow and was harvested on the morning of Halloween in Clermont County, Ohio. To say I'm a proud dad is an understatement. Thank you for the opportunity to put him and his dandy buck out there for everyone to see.
