The last week of deer season is here as Saturday is the final day of Oklahoma’s bow season.
With that in mind, I thought I would share the story and photo of this great buck taken by Tim Jensen of Tuttle during gun season.
Jensen said it was his biggest buck in 25 years of hunting. The 188-pound, 10-point brute was killed in Grant County on Thanksgiving morning. It green scored at 147 6/8.
“I saw him about ½ mile away in a big CRP field chasing a doe,” Jensen stated in an email. “Luckily enough, they were headed my way and passed by at about 125 yards. I stopped the doe with a whistle and he stopped, too.
“The rut was really heavy all that week and I had been passing on several good bucks. Every buck I saw was with a doe.
“I saw a different 10 point in the same area whose inside spread probably was 21 inches. I actually watched him bed down with a doe in a CRP field on the neighbors property Wednesday morning about 8.
“I was hunting hard for him until this giant showed up. I guess I have no regrets!”
Stay tuned for more deer season photos and stories from readers on my blog in the future.
