    WV Buck down!

    I thought I would post even though it is in WV. I have hunted Ohio a lot also the last 3 years. Hoping All of my scouting, and previous hunting trips to cooper hollow are going to pay off this year. This buck came from point pleasant area WV.


    Good luck to all!

    A nice deer is a nice deer, no matter what side of the river it came from. Congrats.

    Nice WV buck, congratulations. Good luck in Cooper, that's my neck of the woods. What's the story?
    "...the deepest, most permanent features of all great moments outside are the names, faces, descriptions, and emotions. The antlers on the wall...well, they're just bones affixed to boards. But what they represent, however, is flesh and blood - fathers and sons, friends spending time with friends and the the seasons of life when the people we love were still with us. These old antlers on the wall...well, take a seat, my friend, and I'll tell you all about them." -Rev. Zeke Pipher

    Well, He was the fifth buck that I saw that day. All of them smaller. I haven't hunted this spot for a couple of years. I mainly hunt at my inlaws and they have 40 acres in Mason county WV. It was about 4:45 and I was watching a couple of does come by below me. As I was standing there watching them I heard some leaves russel behind me. I turned and he was coming down a trail on the side of the hill behind me 25yds. Took one look at the antlers and decided to shoot. He stepped in my lane and I let it fly watching the arrow pass thru. Now comes the weird part. He never jumped, flinched or ran. Just stood there for a second and then proceded to walk up the hill. I started to second guess myself and then I thought I gut shot him. He was perfectly broadside and we were level with each other. I see him walk to the top of the hill and watch him bed down. Now I think to myself that I have gutshot him and I am going to have to sit here til 9:00pm waiting for him to expire. Maybe a minute goes by as I am trying to watch him thru the brush I see him get up and fall over. end of story. I caught him high and back. I thought liver but it was ok. Maybe back end of lungs or the deer aorta or cava as it runs down. Not sure just glad I got him.

    Now I am concentrating on my Ohio tag. I had a nice 8 pt come under me Saturday. Was a little bit bigger, but If I have to kill myself getting it out of the places I hunt at cooper, it is going to be pretty big.

    Blackbeard, that is such a nice area there. I never see a lot of deer though. Just a few most times I am out. Seems like 90% of the people there are from out of state. In the early season sometimes I feel like I am the only one there. But when November rolls around there are a lot of vehicles. Only once have I started in to hunt and there were some guys in my area and I Knew that when I pulled up. I got there late. I guess I could have been a pr&*^ and walked by them. I wanted to go a lot farther than where they were at, but I just turned around and went to another spot. Thats when I saw the bigger 8 pt. Probably 100 inch deer. The last couple of years I have covered a lot of ground there in the off seasons. I am hoping lady luck will catch up with me there also.

    Good buck, congrats.
    I may be opinionated...but, my opinion is the only one that matters anyway.
