The buck of young lifetime

A wry smile comes across Jacy Hausauer’s face when she tells the story of taking her first whitetail back at age 14.
That buck, taken two seasons ago, was not a monster by any stretch, but a decent 4x4 none-the-less. It was the story behind it that brings a grin to her face.
Hunting with her sister, Kayla, and her brother-in-law- Travis Martin, she earned a rather dubious nickname after the hunt.
Jacy’s shot at the buck went low but she got the bounce to go in as the bullet ricocheted and hit the buck in the lung, dropping it a few yards from where it stood; hence the nickname “ricochet.”
This year’s hunt went a little more according to plan. The junior at McClusky High School harvested a dandy non-typical 6x6 whitetail buck on her family farm in northern Sheridan County.
The buck with a split G2 rough scored 130 on the Boone and Crockett Club and had an outside spread of 17 ½ inches.
