Gary Jacobs’ 10 Pointer

December 17, 2010

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 10

Kill Date: 11-21-2008

County: Union

Season: Shotgun

It was a beautiful Friday morning for opening day of shotgun season. The sun had just started to come over the trees when i had a wide 8 pointer come into the CRP field at about 280 yards. Knowing this is out of my shooting range I waited and watched. Finally at 250 yards I set T/C Omega at the top of his back and shot. Boy was I disappointed when he lifted his head to see where the shot had came from. Missed him completely. I knew then I needed to work on long distance shots. While I was reloading after this shot, this 10 pointer came to the edge of the hardwoods to my right, I guess to see what the commotion was all about. He was standing 125 yards from my stand so I finished my loading, set the cross hairs on the shoulder and let the shot go he ran about 75 yards and crashed, man was I excited my biggest Buck ever.
