A Buck Named Jinx

This bowhunter sticks with it until his target buck's "curse" is no longer a factor.

Bowhunter - February 2024 Issue
(Author photo)

I first saw this buck in 2018. He was a goofy, busted-up 3x3 with very distinctive brow tines, and I figured him to be 2.5 years old. I honestly didn't think that much of him that first year. He looked like an average buck, but I saved a few pictures of him because I knew he would be easy to identify from his brow tines. Little did I know he would grow from that goofy six-point to a buck almost pushing Pope & Young the next season.
