Bill Champlin Buck

dad and i ... great hunt
Hi my name is Joshua Champlin and my father Bill Champlin shot this buck on november 25, 2011 (Black Friday). We were walking out of our hunting location when I spotted this buck chasing a doe through the field that my dad had just walked through. After the deer went into a swamp, I called my dad on the cell phone and told him to double back around. I went around the other side and waited. Minutes later I heard three shots coming from my dads 20 gauge. Immediately, the hair on the back of my neck was standing on end and then I got that faithful phone call from my 63 year old father... telling me that the monster buck was down. A lot of excitement in the Champlin household (141 and three eighths...168lbs). Not to mention, the other great things that have happend to us. Dad (Bill Champlin) being a grandfather this August thanks to me and my wife. Dad retiring at the ripe old age of 63. And lastly, dad being Chief of the Elbridge Fire Dept. Alot has happend this year for my father, but I would say that this buck is at the top of his list... Thank you dad for all of the great memories... love always... josh
