Born Again Buck

While bowhunting this year, I met this gentleman who told me that if I was born again, I could get a nice buck like the one he got – which incidentally, is a monster buck. He handed me this photo and I took a picture of it. He was delighted about the changes that had come into his life by being born again and attributed his hunting success to these changes. I had some shots at very nice muley bucks, but did not connect, leaving me in the unenviable position of not being a chosen one.

New Typical Record Book Buck

Posted by on Monday, 5 October, 2009

What do you think? Is this a new world record typical mule deer buck?


Email submitted by Paul Baxter

This deer was shot 12 miles east of Monticello, Utah by Max Johnson in 
1968. He kept it at his home and didn’t think much about it until his 
son took it to the 2009 International Sportsman’s Expo in Utah. The 
Safari Club staff had a booth near by and asked if they could measure 
it. According to it’s method of scoring, it was 228. The Safari Club 
folks returned it and announced that it was now the Club’s new world 
Max’s son is Keele Johnson, a good friend of mine and a former Utah 
legislator, is one of the guides on the moose hunt with me in Alaska.

Young Hunter kills first Archery Buck on North Rim

Posted by on Monday, 5 October, 2009

A 22 year-old hunter from Globe Arizona arrowed this nice buck mule deer on the second day of the Unit 12 bowhunt. He was standing near a meadow in a rain storm watching two bucks feed past him. He shot the smaller of the two – claiming that the larger buck was huge. The larger buck never presented an acceptable shot so he shot the smaller one instead. This is his first archery buck and he may have a hard time doing better.

North Rim Bowhunt

Posted by on Sunday, 4 October, 2009

I bowhunted the North Rim this year and attempted to talk to as many hunters as possible. Most hunters were seeing bucks and most were getting some shots, but only five, that I’m aware of, bagged bucks. There was rumor of a big buck being taken from the southwest quadrant on opening day, then there was this buck taken by a young man who said he missed shots at some big ones:

This young man was with an older person who had spent considerable time scouting and preparing for the upcoming rifle hunt. Here are a couple of his friend’s tree cam shots:

Getting an archery buck from the North Rim is difficult, but there are a few good ones available.
