Monster Buck Bagged End of 2010-11 Oklahoma Season
Wade Ward is very thankful that Oklahoma's season got an extension to January 15th, and that they allowed crossbows. He had seen a monster buck on his trail camera for the past two years, but never out while hunting; until January 11, 2011. It was around 5 degrees out, with snow spitting. Ward had borrowed his wife's crossbow, as it was easier to use in such miserable weather. Ward was on his land in Rogers County, Oklahoma. It was dusk, and the deer came to the corn feeder, that Ward supplements with Buck Blitz. One shot, and Ward got a trophy buck.
If approved, it would be the biggest typical buck ever killed during the archery season in Oklahoma and the third-largest typical ever. The typical 14-point buck grossed 196 6/8 and netted 188 4/8 after deductions. Ward has submitted the buck to Boone & Crockett and to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation's Cy Curtis program, the state's record keeper for trophy bucks. Ward said he would've never known the buck existed had it not been for his trail cams. The buck had been around for awhile, but no one had reported seeing it. Nearby at Blue Creek Park a huge shed was found though. Oklahoma's 2011-12 archery season just started on October 1st, good luck to all the hunters. From NewsOK.com.
