But we were able to find one of his 2020 sheds this year, during one of our first trips to the farm.Week2Two 900“My 14-year-old son has named this buck ‘Junkyard,’ and has claimed him for this hunting season,” Milholland continued. “We will be using compound bows to hunt this buck; last year my son took his first deer with a bow, a doe, and has previously taken some great bucks using a crossbow.Week2Three 900“It will primarily be my son and I hunting this buck, and his grandfather will make a few trips down from Indiana to join us throughout the season.
