Fantastic Florida 9 Pointer!

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.

There are some great bucks

There are some great bucks down in FL but the majority of them live on private land. Killing a buck like this on public land is rare. The lack of mass of his antlears is typical for FL though. it is indeed a nice buck...
