MATT BRANCH: 11/02/06
190 lb 11 POINT
147 5/8" Gross - 139 6/8" Final
THAT'S POPE & YOUNG
You are looking at a young guy, with a buck of most
Matt was hunting in Riga, NY when he too this
I wasn't at Creekwood when Matt brought the buck
in, so I didn't get to enjoy his story.
When he comes in to collect his winnings in the
contest, I look forward to hearing all about it.
The mental toughness a man has to have to
maintain his cool when shooting a buck like this
at fifteen yards is not an easy thing to control.
The buck only went seventy yards. His inside
spread is 17 4/8",
Main beams 22 4/8" and 20 4/8", Brows 6 2/8"
and 4 3/8",
G-2's 10 4/8" and 10 5/8", G-3's 10 1/8" and 9 0/8",
G-4's 3 1/8" and 1 0/8".
It doesn't seem right that a buck like this can
come in second place in a deer contest in New
York State. What a super year.
When I killed my biggest bow buck ever, my hunting
partner, Roger Lowden told me, "You might as well
quit hunting because you will never kill a bigger buck
It didn't stop me from hunting and I bet this monster
buck won't stop Matt either.
I wonder if Matt listens to Larry the cable guy:
"GET ER DONE", because he did.
LIFE IS SUPER GOOD !
