On October 16, 2021 I was able to harvest this amazing buck! We were getting pictures of him all summer in velvet & I knew I had to get him. A few of my dad’s friends got pictures of him for the past three years but never saw him in person. The second evening I went out he walked in at about 30 yards but wasn’t able to get a shot. I was just in shock that I saw him in person. Went out the next three nights and noticed he had the same pattern every evening but never came close enough for me to get a shot. So the 5th evening my parents moved my stand in the afternoon in hopes that I would get a shot. At around 6:45 he walked in to the left of my stand at 23 yards and I was able to get a good solid shot. We tracked him shortly after and found him. Hands down one of the best experiences of my life!

Shot this 9 point buck with my bow October 2nd in Ripley County at 7:10 pm. I had previously been getting consistent pictures of him on my camera but then he quit showing up. I hung a stand on the edge of the cedars and he showed up on my third sit. He came in and was a little skiddish. Luckily, I was able to pull the shot off and found him later. I was blessed and happy that night.

My daughter, Autumn's (age 6) first deer. The harvest took place in Ohio County on September 25th, Opening Day of youth season. She shot this 9 point buck at 20 yards with a .410 shotgun. Such a proud moment

I live in Aurora Indiana. The harvest was taken in Dearborn County. I’ve watched this buck grow up for a couple years. I have a lot of trail camera photos and videos he was very tricky to finally get a shot on. It was all a matter of the right place at the right time.

  • The Witches of Breakout

    The Witches National Convention was held in our room last night! We found out that they made plans to turn everyone who isn't a witch into a black cat or a bat. They locked the spell they need in the Breakout EDU box. The Spell was written in magic ink, and if it stays in the box for more than 45 minutes, it will be cast! If we can open the box before the 45 minutes are up, contact with air will break the spell. Work together to unlock the boxes and undo the magic of the Witches of Breakout! Registration required; limited spots available for individuals and groups. Must register: www.lpld.lib.in.us/calendar. 5 p.m. & 7 p.m. (two sessions) Friday, Oct. 22, Lawrenceburg Main Library. 812-537-2775. Tweens and Teens. Free.
