Like others I thought I would never top that fine buck I took last year in Oklahoma, until January 19, 2010, when I was hunting in the northern portion of Okaloosa County Florida, north of Baker Florida and just a few miles south of the Alabama line. Close to 5:00 pm this nice 9 pointer come in chasing a doe. I watched him for a few minutes until I was able to take a 75 yard shot. After shooting him he ran about 40 yards and dropped. This is my best whitetail deer to date. He weighed 200 pounds and has a 17 inch inside spread. It was a chore to get him in the truck but worth every minute of it.
Please get out and enjoy the wonders of the hunting experience, and take a child and expose them to this wonderful tradition.
