REED CITY — Deer season isn’t quite over yet. There’s still muzzleloading and archery season this month. But it was a memorable season for Ivan Giese of Osceola County, who said he bagged an 8-point buck the first day of archery season. He shot it from 25 yards away and loaded it in his truck himself .
“Opening morning, I got out there aboutt 7 a.m.,” he said. “I looked up 7:30 and saw a deer coming down. He got a little closer, about 40 yards. I started counting his antler points to make sure (it had enough points). I could see it was the 8-point buck. I got 25 yards away and had a nice shot on him.”
