Not a minute after high noon ,Jimmy heard crashing coming from the woods on the right side of the field, he turned and saw two doe heading west pop out of the thickets coming straight at him. Then the small buck he had seen a few days before appeared, followed by the big guy not even 15 feet behind them, again coming straight at him.
“I’d be a liar if I told you I didn't start shaking,” Jimmy said.
Jimmy wasn’t sure as to why they were running so quickly but he ventured to say someone spooked them considering it was right at lunchtime.
Jimmy waited till all four were clearly in the field before he stood up to shoot. When he stood up, all four deer obviously saw him, they turned around and booked it for the thickets again but they made one mistake in doing so.
They turned broadside and headed for the ravine in the back of the field. Jimmy lined the 10-point up in his sights and let his cannon roar, it was about a 30-35-yard shot. Bacher’s Beast took one big step and dropped right there in the field. Jimmy let out with the biggest war hoop he ever shouted in his life, danced a couple fist pumps in the air and finished with a couple of great big, “wahoos!”
Jimmy Bacher harvested his 10-point Bacher’s Beast buck on Jan. 8, 2013 during the Ohio Muzzleloader season. He was using a Huntsman .50 caliber with a Tasco Pronghorn scope setup, 2 Pyrodex Pellets 50 grain each and Powerbelt HP Copper Clad 245 grain sabots.
He shot his beast of a buck at around 30 to 35 yards and he went no further. His beast had a hanging weight of 177 pounds and was a huge 10 pointer. Jimmy was hunting in Trumbull Township and checked his deer in via the Internet.
