Hunter: Ryan McCowen
Points: 8 (4L, 4R)
Ryan and his Dad were hunting together in a two-man ladder stand hoping to get some more deer meat. About 7:30 a.m. four does came out in front of them and were walking across a ridge. Ryan’s dad was looking through his binoculars trying to figure out which deer would be the best one to shoot when all of a sudden Ryan whispers, ”don’t move, buck, buck.” It’s an 8-pointer and it’s coming in from behind us.” After about 30-45 seconds the buck walked by them and started walking towards the does. He step into one of their shooting lanes and turned broadside. Ryan shot him and he only ran about 50 yards and crashed. This was Ryan’s second 8-pointer of the season.
