Garrett Sets his Target on a 200”Ohio Buck
It’s not often in this state that a hunter gets the chance to chase a 200” Ohio buck! Therefore you should not wonder why I am completely obsessed with the buck I call “BIG ED” in the image above! This buck has all but haunted me for the last two years. Watching him grow from a two-year-old to the picture above last year (coming close to 190”), and now an estimated 200”+ four-year-old for this year’s season drives me nuts! Why? I have still NOT laid eyes on him while hunting! He narrowly avoids most camera sets and is nocturnal! However, the 2017 Ohio archery season might put luck on our side! I’m taking a completely different approach on him.
He has traveled on the same path of another 200”+ deer we called “Ghost” several years ago that we never killed. This eerie history with complete giants ﬁnally gave me an idea of where he might be staying or moving during daylight…if he’s still alive! After “BIG ED” disappeared in the middle of October last year, I’m still left hoping he’s alive! Since I am still clueless on his whereabouts I put up 6 cameras surrounding the travel route he normally runs in the early season. My ﬁngers are crossed that he appears on one of the cameras here soon to brighten our hope for the season this year!
