Jared Blimling’s 13-pointer

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 13

Kill Date: Nov. 8, 2009

County: Morgan

Season: Bow

EDITOR’S NOTE: Here in the words of Murrayville bowhunter Jared Blimling is the story of his hunt for a 13-point Morgan County buck.

The stand I shot this buck out of is about 80 yards behind my house. While I had not seen this buck before, a couple of neighbors had and told me a monster was in the area.

I waited almost two weeks before hunting the stand because the wind or weather was always wrong and I have only 5 acres to hunt in the area around my house.

After rattling for awhile and hitting the grunt call a few times the buck came right in and I shot him at 24 yards.

What makes this hunt even more incredible is that my buddy Jerry Stice filmed the hunt. I hit the buck a little farther back than I wanted and we found him the next morning.

The taxidermist unofficially grossed scored the buck at 214 inches. The buck is a main frame 10-pointer with split G-2s and one kicker off his brow a little over an inch.
