The story behind Kyle Koon’s fantastic east Texas trophy buck that scored 196 4/8 inches non-typical.
- An ordinary day of going out and checking the game cameras boosted the anticipation of the upcoming bow season to a whole different level.
After I pulled the card from my Cuddeback camera and began to sift through the pictures, I halted when I set my eyes on an absolute giant buck. There he was...The Kicker 10. It was the nickname he was given last year when he had a 2-inch kicker on his left G2. Although he didn’t carry his kicker this year his antler characteristics left no doubt it was him.
We had been following this bucks growth here in Hopkins County, Texas since he first started showing up as a 1 1/2 year old and now we knew it was time.
