On Thursday Oct 4th I was on my way to a doctor’s appointment and called by brother who lives in the upper peninsula. We were discussing that neither of us had any real shooters on our trail cameras. Upon getting back from the doctor’s appointment, I retrieved the disk from my trail camera and saw this huge buck had been at my stand Wednesday evening and Thursday morning. Excited !!! I called my wife and told her she had to be home by 4:00 p.m. to watch our daughter so I could hunt that evening. I hunted the stand that evening, but the buck did not show up. I very much wanted to hunt the stand in the morning, but I did not for fear of spooking him going to the stand. Friday evening I hunted the stand and at 6:50 he showed up. He stopped at 30 yards. I put the sight pin on him and made the shot. He ran into the woods about 60 yards and expired. Thankfully I had family members who aided me in the recovery of my best buck ever.

Stacy

Stacy and Konner went out at 11am with not much action. They sat for 6 ½ hours until they started finally seeing deer right before dark. Pretty proud of konner for sticking it out the entire time and congratulations to Stacy on your biggest buck to date!

Reece Webster

Reece Webster (12) from Frankenmuth shot this dandy 10-point buck on our Lee-Ostrander family farm in Twining, MI this last Saturday, September 22 around 5:05PM. The deer has a unofficial rough green score of 156”. Reece made an excellent 180-yard shot into a bean field using a Rock River 6.8mm rifle. A Rambo Electric Bike was used to enter the field hunting location quietly and with less scent — a very important tactic in our approach to this successful evening hunt!

Jayde Ellison

Jayde Ellison with her very first deer! To top it off it’s a 3 point and she used her Great Grandpas gun! . After years of hunting with her dad she decided this year she gets to take the shot. She dropped him in his tracks!
