Season Starter Buck

I have watched this buck for 4 years. I knew he had the potential of being a monster buck when I first seen him at 2 1/2 years old. I held out and did not hunt him for 4 years. I am very thankful that a neighbor did not shoot him during that time. The trail camera picture of this buck showed he put on 25" of antler since last year. Last year, he was an 11 point that scored in the neighborhood of 165". This year, he blew up into a 5 1/2 year-old, 17-pointer that scored 190". On October 26, 2012, I decided to get into the stand for the first time of the year since we had a cold front move in. I had been in the stand for about two hours when this buck came out from behind a cedar tree like a ghost. It didn't take me long to realize this was the one I was after. I quickly grabbed my bow and drew on the buck without looking at his antlers. I didn't want to get nervous by looking at his antlers too long. I buried a Wasp Jak-hammer SST 1 3/4" cut broadhead through both lungs. The buck did not run 100 yards before expiring. This is truly a buck of a lifetime and I owe it to Wasp. I have shot Wasp for many years and I just can't find another broadhead that I like more. Of all expanding broadheads, I believe Wasp has the thickest and sharpest blades on the market. I am so happy that Wasp continues to produce the Jak-hammer SST 1 3/4" cut broadheads. Thanks again Wasp!
