Who says Friday the 13th is unlucky?
It wasn’t for Terry Redus of McLoud who bagged this beautiful buck with a bow on Jan. 13 on his lease in Logan County.
It is Redus’ biggest deer with a bow and a buck he had been hunting for two years.
“Can’t wait for next season,” Redus wrote in an email. “Got trail cam pics of his son, an 8-point that’s as big if not bigger.”
Sunday (Jan. 15) was the final day of the deer archery season in Oklahoma.
The state’s deer harvest is expected to be slightly down this season from a year ago, according to Alan Peoples, head of wildife division for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.
But it will be months before state wildlife officials will have the numbers totaled.
