Here’s the note his dad, Pat, sent:
“This hunt was an exciting first for Tyler, 12, as he watched this bobcat sneaking up on a gang of turkeys from atop his tree stand. Tyler is also an avid deer hunter and placed 3rd in the youth division at state last year with his massive buck. Tyler decided to let his younger brother, Corey, have his chance at a big buck this year. Here is Corey’s story.
‘I’m Corey Bond (age 10) and I killed my biggest buck ever with my muzzleloader. It was a cold breezy evening and I heard a deer walking up the ridge. I thought it was a doe, but when it popped out I could see that it had a set of big horns. I shot and when the smoke cleared I had a 10 pt. buck on the ground. I was happy, happy, happy!’”
I’d be happy, too, Corey! Super buck and fantastic story! Great bobcat for Tyler, too!
