Just When I Thought It Couldn’t Get Any Better!!

August 11, 2012 by CouesWhitetail in Featured, Hunt Stories with 2 Comments

by Brian Rimsza

Well just when I thought my year could not get any better it did. Most of you know I am an absolute coues deer fanatic. I have been hunting these little guys like most of you for the better part of my life. Up until August 29, 2009 my best buck with a gun was right at 102″. On Saturday, I got permission from my fiance to go hunting so I jumped at the chance (she really did not have a choice!!!!). I went to a water hole which I had seen some decent bucks on in the past and figured I might have a chance to get a nice buck with my bow because it has been so hot. I got in my double bull at approximately 7am and figured I would sit all day. At 930 I had a doe come in and then at 1030 I was visited by a nice black bear. At 130 I had two small bucks show up but they were nothing I was going to shoot. At 3pm another doe came and drank. As the doe left my view from the blind window this giant showed up. I was ready and he walked to the same spot where all the other deer had watered which was 30 yards. I flipped on the video camera and prepared myself for the shot (YES I GOT IT ALL ON VIDEO). It was everything I could do not to shake the arrow off the rest. Once the buck committed to drinking I drew. At the shot the buck ducked a little and I caught him in the spine dropping him instantly.

This is the first animal I have harvested using my new ELITE GT500. If you have not had a chance to shoot an ELITE bow I suggest you check them out. They are lightening fast and have a great feel to them. I was using GOLD TIP arrows with 100 grain Wac Em broadheads. Spot Hogg sight with a limb driver rest along with fuse accessories. I also want to thank the staff at Archery Headquarters for getting me set up especially George and Randy.

This buck is everything I could ever imagine. He has 7 points on his right and 4 on his left. Depending on how things are scored his SCI (no detuct/adding everything) score is 128 4/8. His gross pope and young score is 124 2/8 and he should net around 118/38. The buck has 18″ of mass per side with over 18 inch beams.

OK here is what the preliminary measurements are:
Inside SPREAD 15 7/8

Right Side MAIN Beam 18 6/8
G1 5 1/8
G2 7 2/8
G3 6
H1 4 7/8
H2 4 1/8
H3 4 1/8
H4 3 2/8
TOTAL RIGHT = 53 4/8

LEFT SIDE
MAIN BEAM 18 5/8
G1 5 1/8
G2 8 2/8
G3 6 3/8
H1 5
H2 4 1/8
H3 4 1/8
H4 3 2/8
TOTAL LEFT = 54 7/8
ABNORMAL POINTS RIGHT SIDE 1, 1 1/8, 2 1/8 TOTAL 4 2/8
SYMMETRY DEDUCTION BETWEEN BOTH SIDES 1 5/8
DEDUCTION PLUS ABNORMAL POINTS = 5 7/8
MAINFRAME TYPICAL GROSS 124 2/8
NET TYPICAL SCORE 118 3/8
THE BUCK IS A 128 4/8 GROSS

I hope you enjoy.
