He was hunting Branch County during gun season, and early on was passing on sixes and eight pointers. His hunting area is know for big monster bucks. The farmer who owns the lease Darryl hunts had just started to cut his corn, and that’s where the deer were hiding.
Darryl set up his stand on the edge of a corn field and it proved to be a good move. He shot this big buck as it was leaving the woods to go into the corn. Darryl knew he was hit hard but the deer made it into the cover of the corn being harvested. Darryl got on his cell phone and asked the farmer to call his worker running the combine, and ask him to hold up for a minute while Darryl searched for his deer. As Darryl approached the combine he heard a sickening noise. Just as it came to a halt it ran over his deer breaking off both G-2′s. It had a nontypical rack with a double main beam on the left side. There were a couple kickers on the right, but the 8 inches of broken tines was rather heartbreaking. Body wise the deer was enormous. It wasn’t weighed but the estimated weight was well over 200 pounds. Congratulations on another great year little brother.
I’m doing some research on the upcoming push to ban some weapons and gun accessories in light of the Sandy Hook tragedy. I will give a report shortly.
