This was my second trip in as many years to widerack. Both years we had warm weather but some real trophies were seen and taken. The first evening in 2015 I had at least a 140" 8 point with some trash that just never gave me a clean shot. I still think about that buck!
This years trip was a little different for me. 2 months out I wasn't sure I was even going to make it with my Lyme disease flaring up. Mike was awesome at working with my concerns. Fortunately I was feeling much better come time to hunt and all went without a hitch. Mike has I believe 42 stands at his main camp and I sat in new stands this year. All very comfortable stands with life lines, shooting lanes, and safety in mind. Both stands I sat in the first day were Millenium 150s.
I ended up tagging out the first evening on a nice heavy bodied 8 pointer. He wasn't going to score huge numbers but I was very happy with the buck. Mike did a great job helping me track and in short order we found him in an area we could drive right to. What a bonus! Some great bucks were seen and or harvested after I left.
Would be a great place to book with a group of your friends. Feel free to contact me with any questions about Widerack.
Look forward to hunting with them in the future.
Well Chris you got it done this time! Congrats on a 200lb eight point SE Ohio Buck! And you sealed the deal with a great shot! We really look forward to your return to Wide Rack Outfitters! You are a pleasure to guide! And it does my heart good to see a young man like yourself who has a real passion for archery hunting! GBTA! Mike Connett, Wide Rack Outfitters www.widerack.com
Very warm weather. I think it definitely was impacting the rut.
