16 Point Buck Taken in Onondaga County

This monster 16-point buck was taken by Dave Edwards in Apulia Station, NY on December 11th. After a week of constant snowfall, Dave headed to an old apple grove on the family farm where QDM was practiced. Fighting his way through two feet of snow he finally arrived at the stand at 6:45 a.m.

Since Dave had never hunted this particular stand before he decided to sit on the ground until it got light enough that he could see what condition the stand was in. A little while later he was up in the stand and scanning his surroundings when he caught some movement in the distance.

As he raised his binoculars to see what it was, Dave knew this was a buck of a lifetime. The deer worked its way in and at 45 yards Dave put the buck down with a slug from his shotgun. He could not believe his eyes when he walked up to the buck and saw the massive 205″ beast lying there. It truly was a buck of a lifetime.

Almost time to get in the woods after this big boy. Going to have to be really careful hunting him, this is my only set that he comes by and it's probably going to be a one time deal, no room for mistakes. ...

Here's a better view of the rack on dad's buck. Seems like a lot of deer in this area have no brow tines. ...
