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.

    Hey man that is a great deer congrats i have hunted Morgan hill State land for many years my family has hunted it for 20 or so years and we have seen many big bucks but none of that size or at least as we could make of them running away.

Not my usual weapon but hoping to test out the Browning A-bolt slug gun before the PA opener. Had the crosshairs on one earlier but turned out to be a spike so he got a free pass. ...
