King Of The Woods Contest

Winner Week 8 King of the Woods Contest

Got a call from the Beasley Brothers the other day regarding my awesome buck that I entered into the King of the Woods Contest (KOW) contest in December 2015.

So after confirming details and facts, I won week 8 of the King of the Woods Contest I sent my photos in.

I’m elated for a chance to compete with the other 12 hunters on May 20th.The green score was 173 5/8 and indeed my best buck ever in over 40 yrs of deer hunting.

The fall weather this year was certainly not typical for our area. Normally snow covered and bitter cold.

Not the mild temperatures we experienced all season.

Fortunately the day before flurries and cold were forecasted and I knew I would see deer wandering, thanks again to my Buck Fever Synthetic Scents.

I will get my full story out once the SWOC Big Buck Sportsmen Show is over and gobbler season is off my list.

I look forward to the King of the Woods Contest will be fun time indeed on May 20th.
