REED CITY\u00a0\u2014\u00a0It was a fun weekend for Tony Dickson of Reed City. Dickson shot a buck over the weekend in the Reed City area. It\u2019s a 9-point buck with 19 3\/4-inch inside spread. He shot it Saturday morning. \u201cI saw a 6-point before that and a bunch of does,\u201d he said. Dickson noted it was getting warm around 10 a.m. and figured he was done hunting. \u201cI was right behind my house,\u201d he said. \u201cI saw him come up. All I could see was his head and is neck. The place where I\u2019m hunting is brushy. I shot him right through the neck. He dropped right there.\u201d Dickson brought his deer to Rogers Heights in Mecosta County for a buck pole on Sunday. It\u2019s the seventh buck he\u2019s killed. He called this a \u201clifetime deer.\u201d It was about 50 degrees when he shot it. \u201cThat\u2019s when I thought nothing will move today,\u2019\u201d he said. \u201cApparently I was wrong.\u201d Jason VanBrocklin, 31 of Paris, brought home a 12-point buck with 17-inch rack span. He used one shot to down his 15th ever deer in Green Township Friday morning. \u201cI was getting out of my blind, calling it a day and it was right behind me about 30 yards,\u201d said VanBrocklin, who was not aware the deer was in the neighborhood. As soon as he shot it, the deer went down. \u201cIt\u2019s the biggest one I\u2019ve shot,\u201d he said. \u201cI shot a small seven-point before.\u201d VanBrocklin said he didn\u2019t see many bucks but was all set to give up before he saw this one. Meanwhile Alex McWain wasted little time in being a successful deer hunter on Friday. McWain, 36, of Paris, was in Newaygo County when he shot an 8-point buck with 13-inch rack span. He used one shot from his .280 Ruger. \u201cThe doe came in first to the little pile I have,\u201d McWain said. \u201cAbout five minutes after she came in, this guy showed up. He chased her around a little bit, and he stopped long enough for me to shoot.\u201d McWain estimates he was 75 yards from the deer when she shot. The deer went down immediately. It\u2019s the fourth deer he\u2019s shot in his lifetime. He\u2019s been hunting since he was 14 and indicated this has been his hunting highlight so far. \u201cThis is a lot bigger,\u201d he said, adding, when asked if there\u2019s a lot of deer out in the woods, \u201cit\u2019s hard to tell right now.\u201d The weather was \u201ca little overcast and a little warm but not too bad,\u201d McWain said. Skyler House, 13, of Big Rapids, was a successful hunter at Grant Center on Sunday morning. He bagged a 9-point buck, the first in his life-time. He used two shots from his Remington 7mm mag.
