Crum nabs 15-pointer during PA bow season

Posted

MILANVILLE (PA.) – October 22 is a day Beach Lake resident James Crum, 74, will remember for awhile.

Starting his hunt around 3:30 p.m. with his Parker bow, Crum eventually saw a trophy 15-point buck.

He waited on the ground, watching the buck for an hour as it was having a snack on the other end of a hayfield. Crum was patient as the buck made its way closer.

“That was the hard part,” he said. Finally around 5:30 p.m., he harvested the trophy buck from approximately 23 yards away.

“I’ve been deer hunting my whole life, but this is the biggest one I’ve gotten around here,” he said.

The 15-pointer has a right beam base of six and a half inches and a left beam base of 6.25 inches.

He named the buck “Insane,” as that’s the phrase many have used to describe the take.

“It’s been a thrill,” he said. “The buck of a lifetime.”
