Jamie Malcom’s 10-pointer

November 08, 2009

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 10

Kill Date: Nov. 8, 2009

County: Macoupin

Season: Bow

EDITOR’S NOTE: Here in the words of Roodhouse bowhunter Jamie Malcom is the story of his hunt for a 10-point Macoupin County buck.

After hunting the entire week of Nov. 2 and having seen no mature bucks within bow range, the morning of Nov. 8 didn’t seem any different. The orange color of another fall morning was brightening the sky when a mature 10-pointer came into view on the far side of a standing cornfield about 60 yards away. 

This was the biggest buck I had seen within bow range my entire 23 years of bow hunting. The 10-pointer walked straight to me and presented a broadside shot at 21 yards. Following the shot I knew I had a made a good hit and immediately called my girl friend about the events that had just unfolded. 

The deer had ran into the standing cornfield so I got down from the stand and went to get my step dad for help with the recovery. The beautiful 10-pointer was found inside the standing corn about 80 yards from where it was shot. 

The deer is a near perfect 10 pointer with only 2.75 inches of deductions and by far my best deer to date and to get him with a bow makes it that much sweeter. 

Macoupin County had finally relinquished one of its big mature bucks after so many years of hunting.
