Dwayne bowhunted near a river and before daylight, but in the moonlight of the full moon he saw a nice buck and watched him and 2 other bucks until daylight came into the area. He could see the buck good but inside his ground blind it was too dark to see the pins on his bowsight.

As Dwayne watched the bucks he noticed that one had an object hanging down by his face and as it moved its head the object shined from the low light. Time passed and finally there was enough daylight that Dwayne could see his pins. And when the buck was less than 20 yards and broadside Dwayne drew his bow and aimed carefully.

The arrow passed through the buck it ran into the trees and dissapeared. Dwayne waited half an hour and checked to see what kind of trail he had. The arrow was covered with blood and a good blood trail was on the ground. Dwayne followed it into the nearby trees and saw his buck.

Dwayne Glover with his “Bling Bling” 9-point buck. As you can see, somehow the buck got very entangled in a chord.

And here is a closer look at the Bling Bling looking thing that Dwayne saw.

Chord was intertwined around the antlers of Dwayne’s buck and the metal fastener on one end was what Dwayne saw shining as the buck moved around in the early morning light. You can see the fastener next to the buck’s ear.

Dwayne texted me and told me about his morning bowhunt and included a picture. I texted him back congratulations and asked him to meet me and my hunting buddies at the Aristacats restaurant in Hamilton for breakfast. He did and told us all what had happened.

Dwayne told us, “It’s the most unique buck I’ve ever taken, by far.”

Dwayne harvested the Bling Bling buck with his new Martin Onza Pro 3 compound bow set at 60 pounds. His broadhead was a Grim Reaper 3-blade.

Congratulations Dwayne on your unusual buck.
