Jessica Nikrasch 2005
Unit 36A, AZ
This is Jessica’s first coues hunt. The deer was taken in unit 36A on the jr’s hunt. Her buck is a 3×4 plus eyeguards and gross scores 89 7/8 B&C. Her family went with her on the hunt and glassed this buck up a couple days earlier going over a ridge. Her dad, Sean, spent that evening on the other side of the ridge, but could not find the buck before dark.
They went back Nov 26 for an evening hunt. This deer got up 40 minutes before dark. They stalked in and Jessica shot 286 yards and hit the deer behind the ribs. He did not go down. Jessica was excited and shot 2 more times and missed. The buck did not move too much. So Jessica finished him with the fourth and final shot. They ran out of light and found him in the pitch black. Sean had to take photos at the quads because we left the camera there. In the top photo are Jessica, her mother Amy and her brother Sean Jr.
