Greg Stebbins of Iron River shot a 9-point buck at about 5 p.m., Friday, Oct. 25, in the Gibbs City area with his compound bow. Fortunately for Stebbins, DNR conservation officer Jason Wicklund spotted him in the area and helped him track and drag the buck out of the woods. Stebbins said, “Officer Wicklund also comforted my wife, Sheree, who claimed that she was entitled to that buck because it was at her hunting stand earlier in the week.” Greg Stebbins is the president of the Camp Gibbs Association and encourages hunters to get their tickets to the Camp Gibbs Hunter’s Fundraising Banquet on Nov. 16.
