Ross Fogle’s 8-Pointer

October 08, 2010

Illinois hunting and fishing

Trophy Tidbits

Scorable Points: 8

Kill Date: October 5th, 2010

County: Woodford

Season: Bow

I started this season with a lot of trail cameras set out to start scouting, and after getting close to 100 trail camera photos of this buck, I started putting up stands. My first day in the tree stand for the year I saw 25 deer over my food plot and this buck came in at 30 yards. I double lunged him with my Bowtech Destroyer, at 5:50pm and then a doe about 20 minutes later. It was my first good buck with a bow, and my first time ever to double up with 2 deer the same day. I have had this buck’s picture on my cell phone main page for weeks before season, couldn’t believe it when I walked up on him. Story of a lifetime for me!

Way to go, Ross.  That looks like a pretty well fed doe.
