Big Bucks Corner

Jenny Hofer’s 11 Pointer

Fri, November 16, 2012


Below is the story, courtesy of Jenny


“This is my 11 point 170” deer taken this 1st shotgun season. Also you should see a 22 point green score 215. The irony of it all is my buddy Andy and I have hunted as a part of our group for 15 years. I got mine opening day, wasn’t feeling lucky where I was originally set up at, so grabbed my hunting license, tag and FOID card and moved to another stand. I heard what I thought was 2 does in the brush and up on the hill at quite a distance I could hear and see a smaller buck coming in grunting. I sat there enjoying the action thinking to myself if there is a big boy in the area he should hear that smaller buck grunting and come to claim his fame. Sure enough wasn’t long and I heard a crashing in the creek. I told myself I need to be ready. I got situated, went to pull out my extra slugs and I patted every pocket I had to realize in the move I did not bring any slugs! I had 1 in my H&R 12 gauge my husband got me for Christmas last year. I pulled up and waited watching towards where the crash in the creek came from thinking, dang I have to make this happen I have one slug. My 11 point came up and stopped broad side, behind a tree. All I could see was his head and his back hip. What am I going to do? Could hope for the femoral artery but I knew that wouldn’t kill him right away, I only have one slug. Thank gosh he looked towards the noises in the brush, grunted and turned and ran straight towards me. I fired once and got him in the neck and he dropped and did not move!”
