The Big 9

On this episode of Crossbow Nation TV we join CrossPro Damian Riffle on a late season crossbow hunt in Ohio. Damian has had a ruff season and needs a little luck. Well, luck comes in the form of a phone call when Damian gets an invite from a friend to take a mature buck off of his property. This property is has been managed for many years, and as you’ll see has a ton of deer. This particular 9 pointer is 5.5 years old and in his prime, however his rack, while still a trophy, is just not where the owner of this property thinks it should be. So it’s now up to Damian to take this buck out of the herd. Damian grabs his Excalibur crossbow and a cameraman and gets a ride to the blind. It doesn’t take long and they are seeing deer. Lot’s of deer. Right when it starts to get dark, the woods comes alive with bucks, and here comes the shooter that Damian is after. The buck comes right into some bait put out to draw the deer closer to the box blind and Damian knows it’s about to happen. He sets his sights just behind the bucks shoulder and pulls the trigger. The arrow finds its mark and the buck runs off. After a quick and easy blood trail in the snow, Damiam claims his trophy.

Damian’s gear on this hunt:

  • Excalibur Matrix Crossbow
  • Black Eagle Executioner Arrow
  • Muzzy Trocar 100 Grain Crossbow Broadhead
  • Lumenok Lighted Flat Crossbow Nock
  • Hawke Optics Binoculars and Scope
