Outdoors Insider, with Dale Sunderlin: Hunting, fishing, trapping licenses on sale


Trinity’s stats

Trinity Stevens harvested her first deer ever which just happened to be a 4-point buck on Sept. 29, 2013 at 6:20 p.m. while hunting with her father, Loren, in Kingsville. She was using a Horton Supreme SL 150 pound draw weight crossbow powered by a Horton bolt and tipped with a Rage 2 blade mechanical 100-grain broadhead.

She arrowed him at 15 yards and he only traveled another 20 before expiring. Trinity and her dad, Loren, where sitting in a two-person ladder stand wearing Woodland camo using apple scent as an attractant and her buck weighed in at about 130 pounds field dressed. She checked in via the Ohio Internet checking system.

Remember, pass it on or it will surely pass on.
