“A Fine 9-Point Buck”

“Snapshot Saturday”

A traditional woodsman holding a long-tined 9-point buck.

The buck stepped out to the edge of the big swamp with five minutes of shooting time left. He flung his head back and scratched his upper shoulder with his long-tined antlers. The turtle sight held steady. Old Northwest Territory, three ridges east of the River Raisin, mid-1790s.
