Overall, our group had pretty good success this year although we didn't connect on two trophy bucks we were after. One was a beautiful ten point buck that was literally in our back yard and the other was a nice twelve or fourteen point that was rubbing eight inch diameter cedar trees. This buck was also very close to home, just on the outskirts of town.
As usual, Jamie managed to connect with a nice eight point that he spotted on the edge of a clear-cut. Jamie is a VERY good shot and he killed this deer at three hundred yards, off hand AND off his wrong shoulder! That's some shooting! This photo shows Jamie posing with his young daughter and this years buck.
The following photo shows a nice eight point buck taken by well respected New Brunswick hunter Kevin B. of the Fredericton area. Kevin got out on a fresh snow and tracked his buck to it's bed and that buck stayed right there. That's a great way to take a buck Kevin!
