Straight Arrow

By Gene Culver

A couple of weeks ago I got to watch a nice 10-point buck tearing up some brush and small trees. I had already filled my buck tag and watched him raking his antlers for about five minutes.

I used my rangefinder to get a little better look at his antlers, and never could tell how long his brow tines were. But I think he would have scored about 130. I ranged him at 30 yards. He gradually moved and stepped out into an opening, standing perfectly broadside. My rangefinder showed 31 yards. I watched as he disappeared into the brush.
