Our family has been after this buck since 2009, as he was a shooter
at 3.5 years old. We have photos of him all the way back to 2008 as a
2.5 year old. My dad missed him on Thanksgiving day 2009, shooting
under him as he crossed a 10 yard wide shooting strip at 100 yards.
Only got photos of him last year.
Opening day 2011, I saw him cross my sewer line food plot at 8:17am
heading towards a bedding area my brother was hunting. At 9:40am, my
brother called him within 10 yards behind his stand with a doe in heat
bleat can. Unfortunately for him, as he turned to take the shot, he
knocked his Gatorade bottle out of the stand, causing the deer to
bound off. This lead to his name Lucky, as he's gotten 2
"chances" at this point.
1 week later to the day, we awoke to the ending of the rain on the
camper. We head out with high hopes of the deer being on the move
after an evening of rain. 8:40am, he comes out on a food plot on a
power line, 175 yards from my dad. The rest is history. We even got a
picture of him at 6:55a.m. about 100 yards from where I was set up
that morning on another food plot, heading towards my father 400 yards
away. These are the words of my son Fred. We have all had
a lot to do with the harvesting of this buck.
I call it the Miehe's 8 Pointer. We have fed, trail cam
pictured and hunted this deer for years. This was truly a family
project. Age: 51/2 Field Dressed - 150 lbs Gross
score 141 inches.
