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.

One of the most unique piebald deer I've ever seen a picture of.

And if you're wondering, yes, I'd send an arrow his way if he was under my stand.

Had a crazy weekend of gear breaking on my hunt last week. Had a second hub on my Primos Double Bull blind crack, ripped a hole in the roof with one of the poles that came out and then found a tree had fallen on my Lone Wolf Portable Treestands. The stand looked okay so I hunted the morning but when I went to take the stand off the tree I realized the top was all bent. Anyone else ever have a tree fall on their stand? (4 photos) ...
