Don't give up on big deer in Oklahoma.
This Buck was 45 points, 147 lbs and was shot Thursday evening at 67 yards,with a bow, according to our local paper. There is a 60 day drying out period in Oklahoma before scoring, but it sure is a nice Buck.

Was taken on the outskirts of McAlester, Oklahoma, around the Carbon mines area.

Thought you guys might like to see it.

I have a son in law that has just started deer hunting last year, and like all newbee's, we have been riding him pretty hard.

Sunday afternoon, we drove out to the lease, and it was grown up something terrible. Our lease is in Gaines Creek bottom, and most of it was under water all summer, and since the water has gone down, the weeds have taken over.

I was showing my son in law how to follow a game trail, and it went off into a patch of really heavy cane. I told him to see if he could follow the trail and find out where it came out on the other side, and I sat down to wait on him.

He was gone about 5 minutes, when I heard a large crashing of brush coming from inside the cane thickett, and watched two hogs about 350 lbs each, come blowing by me like they were shot out of a cannon.

My son in law came blowing out shortly afterwards, and his face was SNOW WHITE. He had not seen the hogs, and must have scared them of of their day bed.

I missed the perfect opportunity, to convince him of a Big Foot sighting, and as scared as he was, he might have believed me.:D

Nice story - yeah, I've heard of people nearly crapping their britches by stepping on a place where hogs are holed up during the day. I've heard they'll get in around stumps and cover themselves with grass and such, making a real surpise meeting very possible.
