HUGE North Dakota buck taken by Bow!

WOW.. What a buck! This recent email was received by the staff at Bowhunting.Com within the past week. Not much is known about the deer or the hunter, Jon Skalicky, except that it was taken near Fargo, North Dakota. Even more astonishing, the magnificent buck was reportedly taken during a stalk and a mere 25 yard shot, with a bow!

Even more interesting about this entire story is that a regular forum member here at Bowhunting.Com posted some velvet trailcam pictures of this buck way back in August of this year. Our forum member has even verified that the distance between this snapshot and the actual taking of the buck was about 1/2 mile. Further evidence of the importance trailcams can play in the success of any hunter!

                                                                                                                                              This trailcamera picture was taken about 1/2 a mile from where Jon would eventually arrow the bruiser buck!


Bowhunting.Com would like to congratulate fellow stick and string bowhunter, Jon Skalicky, on this once in a lifetime trophy whitetail buck. If you have any more information on this buck please do not hesitate to contact us here via email at

Congratulations again to Jon, and we look forward to further bringing you the latest information on BIG-bucks and the hunters who took them. Good luck, we hope to see you in the spotlight soon!
