Hunter: Brent Owens
Points: 12 (6L, 6R)
I had seen this buck for several days, and I also had trail camera pictures of him. My son and I named him “Big 10” even though we later found out he had more than 10 points. I shot the buck and tracked him for a few hundred yards and we jumped the buck. I called Jody Pate to bring his tracking dog, and the dog tracked the buck for a few miles. The dog was tracking the buck and ended up running the buck back toward me. I was able to get a clean shot at the wounded deer as it ran past and made the kill. It was an amazing hunt and track. I want to give a huge thanks to Jody Pate and his amazing tracking dog Tina. I was thrilled once I had the buck in my hands and was able to finally see what a special buck he was. The buck is a main frame 10-point with 4 to 5 more smaller points and weighed 230 pounds.
