Deer of the Day - Bluegrass State Buck, Willie T. Bass
Willie T. Bass with his best bow buck to date

Willie T. Bass had planned on spending the weekend working on his foodplots in the area he hunts near Shady Grove, Kentucky when he decided to take an afternoon off to hunt.


His stand was surrounded by white oaks and about an hour into his sit, he spotted seven bucks walking into his area. The last buck was the biggest. He used his Mathews MQ2 with Thunderhead broadheads to "bring him home."



The nine-point buck scored 145-inches and is Willie's best bow kill to date.

Congrats on a great buck!




We want your buck as our Deer of the Day! Please send us an image of your buck, a brief description of your hunt and the gear used to whitetail@imoutdoors.com
