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.
