Great work on a awsome buck. Don't kill them all. I will be hunting in SC after christmas and hope there are a few left that look like that.

Some of you seem surprised that SC has great bucks. I think its a fallacy that all the deer in the south are little. Some of my best hunt are from that state. You see a lot of deer so some people think it is easy. But to pull out a great buck like that you really have to know your stuff.

Here are a few my son, me friend and I have been lucky enough to cross paths with.

Northeast,

Thanks, and those are some pretty nice bucks you have there as well. Did they all come from South Carolina? Where are you hunting in SC? I love seeing the pics of the boy. How old is he? I have a 6 year old daughter and a 5 year old son and they are dying to go as well. I believe we are getting pretty close to starting with them. Is that a New England Arms .223 he is holding? I have been looking at them for my two and would appreciate any feedback on how that gun has done for him.

Thanks, Tom

Man i have been trying to get this to work all day.

Thanks man. Ya all those are from SC. I love hunting down there. It is a differnt pace of life.

I really enjoy hunting with my son. Dylan is 7 now and my best memories from the past two years are with him. Thank god for SC and NH. Dill has got to spend a lot of time in the woods with dad and helped fill the freezer to boot. SC hunter, get those spuds out, even if just to sit with you.

Here is the spud in action/ click the link

On the other part of your question. Yes it is a .223. I found it worked great for deer and never bothered Dill. It had little to no kick and we are able to work on form and shooting skills. A .223 can be very effective for deer, but they have to make a good shot.

On most critters and with a bigger gun I tell Dylan to aim behind the shoulder. With the .223 for deer. I tell him to shoot right for the shoulder. It is easy for young hunters to find the leg, come up and aim for the shoulder. The chance of gut shot goes down and the deer will fall where they stand.

Send me a pm for details on the gun.

Northeast,

Thanks for the reply. Yea, My kids love to go with me and do so often. I am just debating if it is too early to start letting them tote a gun with us or to atleast start shooting something other than a .22 I will pm you on the gun.

Thanks, Tom

He didn't stand a chance did here SCbuckhunter. Did he flop right there?

Only 7 more days until the south will no longer be safe.
