Doug Kelch’s 9-pointer

December 08, 2010

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 9

Kill Date: 11/28/10

County: Peoria

Season: Bow

This was the morning of my dad’s birthday, and he wanted to move his stand for upcoming shotgun season. So we got in the truck and head to the place that we get to shotgun hunt when the guy that owns the place said there was a deer laying on the this hillside and hasn’t move for awhile.

By the time I could see the deer is was 40 yards away from where we stood. But the problem was we didn’t have a bow with us and I had to call my mom to bring my bow over. She brought my dad’s bow. So I got ready and had to look for the easiest way to the bottom of the hill where I might be able to get a shot, not knowing that I was going to end up walking to about 5 yards on the bedded down buck. I knew I was getting close, so I drew back and kept walking a little close to 5 yards. At this time I made a perfect shot on the buck, the buck ran about 30 to 40 yards and fell over.
