MARTINO: Passion for turkeys leads to unique invention

Gobbler Gauge is made by Kokomo's Graphics Lab


Over the past week, several area bowhunters have scored on great Indiana whitetails. Take Gary Chambers for example. He connected on a 14-point buck sporting a field dressed weight of 235 pounds. That’s a great deer in anyone’s book. And through the upcoming weeks, there will be others who tip over bucks earning a special place on their wall.

Here are the names of other local hunters who have taken deer with archery equipment. This list, which includes field dressed weights, was provided through our local check-in stations which are Bryant’s Outdoor Store and Simpson’s Deer Processing.

Taking any deer, regardless of size, with archery equipment, is a sizeable outdoor accomplishment worthy of recognition. If you have been fortunate in encountering success this season, but checked-in your deer at another location or through new on-line services, please feel free to contact me for inclusion in my weekly hunting results.

Josh Trine — 110-pound doe; Phil Hatcher — 150-pound, seven-point buck; Matt McDonald — 180-pound, 10-point buck; Jason White — 110-pound doe; Bryan Klingenpeel — 175-pound, eight-point buck; Austin Peters — 195-pound, 10-point buck; Darrell Drake — 140-pound, eight-point buck; Max Elmore — 100-pound doe; Mike Esslinger — 173-pound, 15-point buck; Justin Fenley —110-pound doe; Kyle Miller — 130-pound, seven-point buck; Deavon Bolton — 160-pound, five-point buck; Kent Glassburn — 193-pound, nine-point buck; Charles Nunnally — 100-pound button buck; Steven Nunnally — 100-pound doe; James Frye Jr. — 200-pound, 10-point buck.

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
