I enlisted the help of 2 neighbor boys to lug him up the 100 foot bank.” Louie Grossman took this absolute beast on 11/26/2020. Louie says, “I shot this deer with my bow on Thanksgiving morning. I saw him trailing a doe and headed away from me at about 250 yards. I grunted at him and he turned around and walked right to me. My Dad actually shot this buck about six weeks ago with his bow. We looked for a couple days and couldn’t find him. He showed back up on trail camera a few days later and seemed completely fine. After we gutted him we found a piece of my Dad’s arrow stuck inside of him. 15 Scorable points. 166″ gross.”
