Byron Sharp 2011. 12pt with 25 1/2in inside spread

December 25, 2011

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 12

Kill Date: 11-18-2011

County: montgomery

Season: Shotgun

I had taken off work for 2 weeks to hunt the rut. Saw several deer but nothing to brag about. The warm weather and wind had prevented the deer to really move. Didn’t kill a buck with my bow, so it boiled down to the gun season. Saw a few deer on opening morning but passed on them. At 4:30 pm here ‘HE’ came! I was in shock when I first saw him. He was in some thick brush so I had time to calm down and wait for him to get in an opening. I steadied my gun and shot. He only went about 40 yards and folded up. He is a typical 12 point with 25 1/2 inch inside spread and grossed 187 inches.
