I've enjoyed reading the comments about this amazing whitetail. By the way, Wade's wife also deer hunts with her husband. In fact, when I was interviewing Wade on the phone, his wife almost shot a buck from a ground blind behind their home. Maybe she will drop a monster this season as big as Wade's.

alex I stand corrected. the doe only provision does not appear this year at least as it has in the past. the danger of the lifetime license and living out of state--dont always go over every inch of the regs like I should. however the extension to the 15th has been set for many years not just last year. it was originally set to allow for more doe management as such the doe only for the last 15 days. Ive let that one slip by though and will not watch the usual bucks while down over the holidays this year!

nice deer gotta love the big typicals

In my opinion, whether it be a compound bow or crossbow, for any deer to be harvested with either tool, many things must come together for the hunt to be successful. In this case a trophy was the prize. I've been a bow hunting 26 years with a compound bow.
On the Oklahoma web site for hunting regs for 2011, the archery season dates are October 1 thru January 15, 2012. Limit of 6 deer, but only 2 can be bucks. Its possible the archery season dates, etc. could have been different last year.
Congrats to Wade Ward!

Hey elkndeer, the OK season was extended to Jan 15 last year.

Definitely a buck of a lifetime. However, and I'm not trying to take anything away from it, but I'd be more impressed if it was taken with a bow and not a crossbow. Using crossbows is pseudo-archery, but that's just my opinion. Regardless, definitely a great buck.

this article says it was killed on Jan 11th. I know a thing or two about oklahoma regs and the entire state is doe only between jan1 and jan15th... so how exactly is this a legal kill??
