Personal Best Buck

On this episode of Crossbow Nation we join CrossPro Kenny Leonardi on a late January crossbow hunt in his home state of Ohio. Kenny is after a couple of nice bucks that he had multiple trail camera pictures of and has his Mission Crossbow ready to go. Kenny has a close encounter with the two shooter bucks that actually walk by within crossbow range but when he has an open shooting lane, the camera man can’t see the bucks. When the camera man has a clear shot to film the bucks, Kenny doesn’t have an open lane to shoot. Kenny has to let what would have been the biggest buck of his life walk on by without taking a shot. Not many hunters would have done so. But he has redemption a couple of weeks later. With only a week left in the Ohio season, one of the bucks on Kenny’s hit list is headed his way just before dark. The big 8 pointer comes in and Kenny takes the shot. The buck runs off and is hit hard but doesn’t go right down. After watching the buck bed down within sight of the tree, Kenny decides to pull out and give this buck some time. After a long two hours break, he heads back in the woods to find his buck laying in the same spot he had last seen him. Kenny kills his biggest buck ever for the Crossbow Nation show and it is a huge 8 point. Way to go Kenny!!!
