Bowhunter David Dauphin shot this video of a 10-point buck on Nov. 9, 2008 near Savanna. “I had just grunted at a buck I had seen and seconds later this 10-pointer came running and stopped 8 feet from the base of my stand,” Dauphin said. “I let him go hoping that next year he would be that big guy I am looking for,” Dauphin said. The buck was seen by two other hunters the next morning and evening.
