Deer of the Day - Vermont Giant, Ted Alexander III

My youngest son, Harmon and I, tracked this deer for two hours on the opening day of deer season in Northern Vermont.

The buck was doing the things bucks do during the rut. We finally caught up with him as he bedded down on top of a ridge. It was a great way to teach my little guy about why deer scrape and rub and how to read the track and make the most of this opportunity because they do not come all that often here.

This was his first year as a licensed hunter and though I was the one that killed the buck in the end, I know he had a great day and for sure it was one I will always treasure.

I was able to share the day with my Dad, Ted Jr and my older son Teddy IV, who were hunting together not too far away. We have shot some very nice deer over the years but this was the one that had been a dream of my father and I.

The buck official gross score was 151 2/8 and dressed at 227 lbs. As of right now it is the highest scoring deer for Vermont in the 2011 season. -- Ted Alexander III
