2017 Warrior Hunt Recipient

David Short

In October 2017, SCI Arkansas board members Rick and Rhett Gore took our veteran, David Short on a hunt at G3 Whitetails located in Northeast Oklahoma, courtesy of owner and Arkansan Joel Green. Upon arrival, they were greeted at his very nice lodge, and although the accommodations and food were spectacular, nothing compared to the whitetails he had on the property. The timing was great because the deer were just starting to move with the first cold snap of the year. After several days of hunting, David got his 168” trophy whitetail. Everyone was excited and happy at his success. David got to experience this hunt of a lifetime through SCI Arkansas’ appreciation of veterans and their generous contribution.

From SCI Arkansas

In this edition:

 

Thank you to everyone who attended our Christmas
dinner at Riverfront Steakhouse. It was fun to visit with our
SCI friends during this special time of year. Merry
Christmas!

In October, Rick and Rhett Gore took our veteran, David Short on an adventure of a lifetime. They went to hunt at G3 Whitetails in Northeast Oklahoma. Joel Green of Arkansas owns G3 Whitetails. Upon arrival, they were greeted at his very nice lodge. The accommodations were spectacular and the food was even better, but nothing compared to the whitetails he had on the property. The timing was great because the deer were just starting to move with the first cold snap of the year. After several days of hunting, David got his 168” trophy whitetail. Everyone was happy at his success.

Thank you, Joel Green for your donation.
Congratulations to David Short on shooting your trophy whitetail.

When I received the call that I had been selected for the Warrior hunt I was shocked and very excited! The trip of a lifetime to go whitetail deer hunting that I would never be able to kill in Arkansas or a lot of other states too. This was early March and deer season was a long time away, so several months passing had eased the adrenalin by late summer when Jim Lee contacted me. He wanted to know when I would like to go on my hunt. I told him that early to mid-October would be good for me if I got to choose the time. I still had no idea where I was going other than Oklahoma, but I figured I would get more information the closer it came to time. When the date was set, I received a call from Rick Gore to set up the details for the trip. I met Rick and his son Rhett Gore at Golden Corral in Conway that evening. After introductions and loading of gear, we were headed for Colcord, Oklahoma, home of G3 Whitetails. Colcord is about a 3-and-a-half-hour drive from Little Rock and is just outside of Siloam Springs, Arkansas. After spending the drive up to G3 getting acquainted with Rick and Rhett, I knew we were in for a good time.

We arrived at G3 Whitetails about 9:45 PM and were met by the owner, Joel Green, and his father in law, Jeff Mabry. The lodge was incredible and was very comfortable with everything you would want in a hunting lodge. After visiting for a while and formulating a plan for the morning’s hunt, it was off to bed to get some sleep with hopes of seeing big bucks in the morning.

When the alarm went off, I was ready to get the day started and eager to see what the morning would produce in the way of big bucks. The weather had been very hot so far and there had not been a really cool day, so Joel said that we may not see anything this morning but that the evening would be better. We loaded in the ranger and took off for the stand going down the steep terrain and back up to the edge of a field with a large box stand. Joel and I slipped in the stand and got settled in for the morning to get started. The temperature had dropped a bit and it was rather cool in the early morning as we waited for the first hint of light to illuminate the surroundings. Joel and I talked about the military and my deployment to Iraq. We didn’t have to wait very long before a couple of doe had just walked right under us before we saw them. The doe kept feeding along and Joel and I kept scanning the edge of the wood line looking for bucks. I noticed a buck bedded down at the edge of the woods directly in front of our stand. He was a decent deer but even this Arkansas boy didn’t get his pulse racing over him, but it was certainly cool to see. After a little while the buck got up and started to move around a bit. I looked to my left and I see coming out of the woods a ten plus point at least twenty inches wide! Now things are looking up for sure and this guy is only about sixty yards away! I don’t let my excitement get the best of me and Joel looks at the deer and says, “he sure is gonna be a good one next year huh?” I was slowly reaching for my gun and then kind of stretched a little and agreed. Wow, seeing this guy was a game changer for sure and the hunt has only begun. We sat in the stand for a few more hours and discussed what kind of deer I was wanting to get. I have always dreamed of a huge non-typical buck that is not your usual. I told him that I was looking for a deer with character that I just can’t get anywhere. We saw several deer while we visited but no shooter bucks, so we decided it was time for some breakfast. We collected back at the lodge and Joel and Jeff cooked a huge breakfast with everything you could want and more. With the ingestion of this fine meal I chose to relax on the couch and take a little nap and contemplated the evening hunt to come.

That evening Joel and I went to another box stand in an area like we were that morning. We settled in and opened windows to let the breeze in because the temperature had certainly risen during the day. We did not have to wait very long before the deer began to move. I noticed a nice buck come out of the woods about three hundred and fifty yards and just lay down. As we looked at him Joel commented that he could be the double drop tine buck he had been seeing. We continued to glass the area and the same ten plus point buck came out again and was followed by a smaller buck. The big double drop tine buck jumped up and took off across the field closing the distance to about two hundred and fifty yards. As I am looking at this buck I can see two drop tines that reach two inches below his jaw and his rack is tall and narrow but very heavy. Joel gives me the word that I could shoot that deer if I wanted too, and buddy I’m here to tell you I wanted too! This buck looked like he had some type of Indian headdress on his head! I could tell he was heavy and tall. Joel said that he would probably score about 180 but that I could take him if he would be alright. “Oh, he is more than alright!” I tell Joel. Joel tells me to let him get closer. Now I am a pretty good shot and I came prepared for a long shot! I said to myself. Joel is the boss and we still have lots of daylight left so we continue to watch and wait. More deer continue to come into the field and I had six large bucks in view at one time. The only problem is they keep getting farther away and not closer in. We wait until dark and slip out of the stand and go to check on Rick and Rhett. They had decided to split up and see if they could kill a monster buck. We got to the stand where Rhett and Jeff were, and we saw them looking at a deer. Rhett had killed the huge non-typical and I have to say it is the biggest whitetail deer I have ever seen in person. I will have to say that I did come prepared for a long shot, but some folks did not. I will leave it there and you can hear the rest from Rhett on the subject. The deer was cut and caped by Joel and their helper Jake in no time at all and then it was time for supper. Let me tell you that these guys know how to feed at G3 let me tell you. Grilled backstrap appetizers, grilled steak, baked potato, salad and all the trimmings. We went to bed with full bellies and I had high hopes for a good morning hunt.

Friday morning, I was up before the alarm and ready to go quickly. I didn’t know where we would go but I knew that Joel meant for me to have a deer. He decided on a stand in the woods that was a likely spot to see the double drop tine deer. I love hunting in the woods and the stand was set up perfectly. The stand is on the point of a ridge and it overlooks a small creek and it has three shooting lanes that cover the area very well. The woods were alive with activity before the sun even came up and there were deer under the feeder as soon as we could see with our binoculars. The same ten plus point made his appearance once again along with a multitude of does. There were deer coming out all over the place and it was getting hard to keep up with them. I saw out my window a large buck that had stepped out into the lane, and when I say large, I mean large! I could tell that this guy wasn’t on the menu, so I was good with just being able to see him, he was a mainframe deer with palmated main beams and he was a brute. While we were watching the crowd, Joel said that there was another buck at the bottom of the hill in the creek. I looked and could just make out the antlers through the brush and with what I could see I sure wanted to see more! We continued to watch the large buck and he eventually walked within spitting distance of us and I have the video to prove it! We continued to watch this buck for what seemed like forever and he would not move anything but his head. I had seen all of it I really needed to see by now and I was getting a bit concerned he would just slip back into the woods like the rest of the deer had done. Then it happened, he moved and headed to the feeder in all his splendor! He was just what I was looking for! I got my gun and began moving into position. Joel was looking and saying he sure is a nice deer and he is a shooter. I started moving my gun up and told Joel, “If there is something you need to do before I shoot, get ready.” he said, “Are you sure you are good with this one, there is still the drop tine buck?” I told him again, “If there is something you need to do before I shoot this deer you better get ready cause I’m gonna shoot him, he is here and not the drop tine buck!” He said, “Ok, let me video the shot!” When he said he was ready I touched the trigger and down he went! I could not believe it, I had shot the biggest whitetail deer of my life! Joel said for us to wait about ten minutes which lasted about two. We drove down to him and I got to really look him over and I could not believe it. This buck was magnificent and more than I could have hoped to harvest. We took several pictures to record the moment and loaded the big boy on the Ranger and headed back to the lodge where he professionally and skillfully caped and cut up by Joel and Jake. The bucks rough score was 168 5/8 and 16 points which is by far larger than any deer I have ever seen much less go to shoot at! I have said it many times, “I would have run my truck off the road to hit that deer!”

After another full breakfast and a completely successful hunt we loaded our gear and headed back home. G3 Whitetails is a first-class operation that is second to none in knowledge and experience plus they are just being good folks to be around. I would like to thank Rick and Rhett Gore for their hospitality and friendship that helped to make this trip of a lifetime memory for me. You guys were gracious hosts and I appreciate everything you did to make this special for me. I would also like to thank the Arkansas Chapter of Safari Club International for the honor of being selected as the 2017 Warrior Hunt recipient. The appreciation of our veterans and their contributions to this nation are to be honored and you as an organization have certainly done this for me.

The day started out rainy, and the temperature was cool and windy. Shortly after we began, the temperature warmed up and the sun came out. People were taking off their jackets, and we ended up having perfect weather for a pheasant shoot. There were ten stations where participants had an opportunity to shoot flying pheasants one by one as they were released from a tower located in the middle of a circle of hay bales scattered throughout a field. Each station had 2-3 people posted behind the hay waiting for birds to be released. Approximately 200 birds were released individually and people got an opportunity to shoot from every angle as they rotated from station to station. The anticipation of not knowing which direction the birds would fly made us stay on out toes with gun in hand. We did very well and shot down most of the birds.

A huge thank you to Jim Lee for putting this event together. He did a spectacular job of organizing this shoot. It was a great experience for everyone to gather, greet, and go pheasant shooting! We hope that we can offer this fun Pheasant event again in the future.
