Mark Bazzell’s 9-pointer

October 26, 2010

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 9

Kill Date: 2009

County:

Season: Bow

Having passed on this buck twice with a bow and Saturday morning of the 2009 slug season, I took my 8-year-old son Justus with me on an afternoon hunt. We setup on the ground in the V of a downed tree in a pasture with a bedding area about 70 yards away. At about 4:15 he came out of the bedding area and headed in our direction, I let him get close so Justus could get a good look at him. I was having trouble controlling my breathing and when he was 20 ft away he stopped and looked in our direction. When I shot, Justus was shaking so bad he fell off his stool. It was the first buck I have taken with Justus with me. It was an awesome hunt and will be a great memory for the rest of our life.  The buck is a 9 point.
