Ohio is my favorite place for hunting Whitetail Deer. This is my third year for hunting during the Ohio Youth Weekend, where kids under the age of 16 can hunt a Buck or a Doe with their parent, guardian or mentor.
I was so happy that my new friend, Savanah Freer from New York state was successful on her first ever Whitetail Deer Hunt. We were hunting with a few other young hunters at Full Bore Outfitters with our guide, Matt Lamp. She shot her Big Buck with a 50-caliber muzzleloader.
I couldn’t wait to return to Ohio for this year’s hunt with Matt Lamp and the guides of Full Bore Outfitters. Matt assured me that this year a few Big Boys were hanging out around my stand and he wasn’t kidding. This heavy duty Buck came in after darkness fell.
More than a few bucks were caught on Matt’s trail camera during the daylight hours, too. He had the photos to prove it . I was hoping to see one of these monsters while I was holding my Ruger 44 Magnum rifle.
Last year I left my 9 point buck in Ohio with Casey Watterson, an award winning Taxidermist. So I was anxious to return to Ohio to retrieve my 2017 Buck at his Lone Leaf Taxidermy Studio. It was a long wait for me, exactly one year, just to see my trophy buck again. Please take a look at my 2018 Ohio video below:
