|Wisconsin's New No. 6 Archery Non-Typical Whitetail|
|Nov 1, 16-point non-typical|
Nichols, a 31-year-old salesman, entered the woods on a Friday evening
unaware of the situation that was about to unfold. Nichols was hunting
in an area that had a series of scrapes in hopes of arrowing his first
buck with a bow. Monty knew that there was a good buck in the general
area because of earlier sightings by friends and locals.
thinking of having a cigarette when I heard a twig snap off to the side
of me. When I looked over in the direction of the noise, the buck of my
dreams was standing in the scrape, looking at me!" Nichols said.
first reaction was to go for his bow, which was hanging on a limb on
the other side of him, but resisted the temptation for fear he would
spook the giant buck.
"It seemed like the stare-off took hours," he said, when in reality it took seconds before the buck turned his head.
slowly picked up his bow and drew it back in one fluid motion while the
buck faced the opposite direction. Suddenly, the arrow flipped off the
rest and made a loud clink! The buck spun around at the sound, giving
Nichols a broadside shot at 20 yards.
"I wasn't really shaking
until then I knew that the buck was at full alert and I tried to get
the shot off," Monty recalled. The buck then turned its head away one
more time and Nichols came to full draw.
Knowing it was now or
never, he rested his 25-yard pin behind the bucks shoulder. Nichols'
arrow found its mark and the buck dropped after a short run. The deer
weighed 245 pounds field-dressed and had an inside spread of 23 1/2
inches. After the 60-day required drying period, the buck scored 206
6/8 non-typical, making it the Wisconsin new No. 6 all time with bow.
