Novice Wisconsin Bow Hunter Gets 15 Point Buck
As a seasoned hunter, Jeff Weber typically uses a firearm. However this year he decided to give archery a try. He had spotted a trophy buck with his trail cam on land east of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. He bought a used bow, and a target and started practicing in mid-August.
Weber saw the buck now being called "Weber buck" back on opening day, September 17th, he didn't take a shot though. He hunted every night for two weeks, wanting to get the buck before the corn field by his stand was harvested. Weber had taken several days off and then went back out Wednesday night. He saw the buck. He waited half an hour to get a shot at the buck. He drew back and released, hitting the deer in the chest. This happened at around 6:40 pm. He found his arrow and there was blood. He and his hunting group tracked a bloody trail, they were about ready to give up when they found the deer a little after 10 pm.
Weber kept the deer in a walk-in cooler at the family's business and then took it to Dutch's Trading Post, where he registered it Thursday morning. Weber has a chance at having a state champion deer, official scoring will take place in a couple of months. A crowd formed, and Weber was congratulated. Weber only kept the buck out for a short while as he wanted to get it to a cooler. When asked if he will trade his firearm for the bow he said," It was too much fun to quit now. I'm hooked."
