The Reilly Buck

September 11, 2012 by James Reilly

On the morning of November 12, 2011, I looked down over my left shoulder and saw this giant buck comming down the trail! I had just enough time to reach up and grab my Mathews Drenalin bow just as the big buck stepped out from behind a large oak tree! With no time to stand up, I drew back my bow from a seated position and found my anchor point and released the arrow, it blew right through the big buck! After following the blood trail for about 70 yards, I finally had my hands on the buck of a life time! The rack has a gross score of 187 3/8 and a net score of 183 3/8. The inside spread is 23 0/8 inches and the greatest outside spread is 28 5/8 inches. It was the largest typical buck shot in the state of Wisconsin for the 2011 hunting season and I believe it sits at number 9 for bow kills in the state. So thanks Mathews for a great bow that has a smooth draw no matter what position you’re in!
