A 9 year old in Oklahoma bagged a 41 point buck!
A nine-year-old third-grader from Oklahoma, Baler Dee Stewart had a frown on his face last fall when his dad, Patrick, went bowhunting on the family’s 10,000-acre ranch without him.
“Baler was acting like he got his feelings hurt,” recalls his mom, Cindy. “I told him not to worry, that we would go deer hunting soon. That’s when I realized he was a little mad. He said, ‘Daddy is going to kill my buck.’”
Baler’s buck, mind you, was a huge whitetail with a stunning non-typical rack and a penchant for raiding Baler’s grandfather’s black-eyed peas patch. Later in the fall, on the first day of muzzleloader season, Baler was semi-dozing when his dad suddenly saw a familiar sight.
I said, ‘Baler, there he is and he perked right up,” Patrick says. “He took careful aim and I heard the safety click off.”
When the muzzleloader boomed, a big-antlered, 200-class pea-picker was finally brought to justice.
