NELSON CROSIER: 10/22/12
189 LB 9 Point 118 5/8" Buck
It's really to bad that all the pictures in my deer contest
couldn't be the one's taken in the field like the one
above. This is the place where this super animal met
Harvesting a animal with some previous years of
battle where it was able to survive 4 or 5 seasons
with a bow and arrow is quite an accomplishment.
When your at an age where Social Security isn't far
ahead in your future, it adds another dimension of
difficulty. This day for Nelson in the Town of
Sweden, Monroe County is one that provides a great
sense of pride, super table fare and a memory that
time can't erase.
Brandon, the man with Nelson doesn't hunt now, but
has a five year old son and is planning, because he
grew up in the Adirondacks and realizes the
importance of outdoor experiences, to enjoy learning
bowhunting together with his son.
Brandon, my suggestion to you is pick Nelson's brain
now, because with your friendship, "Now is the time
the Walrus said". When your son becomes of hunting
age Nelson may be like I am now, where going afield
to teach you may be a hardship. Nelson has a plan to
stand up on the half-hour to stretch and get the blood
flowing again. He said to me, it's a silly thing to believe
the deer always comes at that time, but he said, for
me, it always seems to work that way. In the case of
this hunt, he watched the buck for less than a minute,
and shot it at 8:00am.
When your deer is on the scale and uses the entire
scale platform, the smile becomes real. It's not the
smile of a photo opt, but a real smile of satisfaction.
Nelson had seen 8 different bucks before this guy
came along at 8:00am and offered him a 20 yard shot
with a two blade Rage broadhead. The pass thru
shot allowed the buck to only go 100 yards. He saw
the hit, saw his arrow in the ground after going thru
the buck and knew the job was complete.
As Nelson's face says,
LIFE IS GOOD !
