    Now thats what im talking about. Look at the mass on that dude not to mention the nice rack. Thats a trophy in anyones book. Now thats what should have won the Big Buck contest. Lets have the story behind that big boy.

    I shot him at 9:30 in the morning.I was hunting in Muskingum County Ohio on private land.We had just pushed this valley out that was to the back of me and i was sitting waiting on the guys to push the valley out that was in front of me. Something caught my right eye and i looked and it was a bigger buck than the one i took. It came from the valley we already pushed from behind me and he wasnt slowing down.I couldnt get my crosshairs on him in time so i turned my head to see where it might have came from and thats when i seen this boy jumping the road heading to the right of me at about 175 yards. He got into a clearing and i hollered as i already had the crosshairs on him waiting for him to stop.When i hollered he stopped and i shot and he dropped.I was using a New England 50 cal muzzleloader the breakdown 209 primer one with 90 grains of powder and 44/244 Hornady sabots.
