November 11: Greg Glesinger

Going into Missouri I had a couple of locations in mind to hunted based around the wind direction for the next few days. Deciding to set out the first mornings hunt to do some observation with our Nikons eliminated our first location, which end up being the key of why we went with a place we call the "100". That observation also supported our decision on taking the Boss Buck in for another call for duty. The large Biologic field was the main attraction for several does in the area, it was just a matter of time before a mature buck would show up.  We seen several does and smaller bucks on Nov 11, and decide to come back on the 12th with the same game plan. Come 2pm we had several does and a few younger bucks eating and checking out the does. The "Big 9" showed himself in the timber and between the does and the Biologic field he could not himself but to checkout all the action. Once he checked a few does and filled his belly, he notice the "Boss Buck" 150 yards away.  He slowly worked his way to our location, once he got within 55 yards we had a good feeling it would all come together.  He's aggressive behavior in challenging the Boss Buck walked him within 28-30 yards and we let the PSE and Rage do what they are designed to do. This deer is at least 6.5 years old, but we have reasons to believe he maybe as old as 8.5. We are sending out his teeth to get the real age in which we will share the results. The "Big 9" has 15 score able points with a kicker and a split G1 off his left side along with a drop tine on his right side.  I harvested my largest bow buck in Iowa on Nov 9th, not knowing at the time it would be topped three days later.  2014 will be a year I will never forget!  It would have never happened with out the support of my wife Lisa and my two children Nicole and Derek!

           Good luck hunting and be safe!
