Mark's Halloween Treat

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

I took this buck in South Carolina on Halloween day. I was hunting private land in Anderson Couny. At 7 in the morning, I was standing up changing clothes when I heard a splashing behind my stand and looked up to see a big buck stepping out of the creek. I picked up my rifle, aimed and took a shot at what later measured out to be 30 feet.

After I calmed down, I climbed down to find that I had dropped a 175 pound, 22-point buck with one shot. He missed Boone & Crockett by 4-1/8, scoring 180-7/8 out of 185 needed. Still a pretty good score. 5th place all-time non-typical in South Carolina.

Super Deer!

That is one awesome buck! Even though he may not have made the book, he is still a serious nice deer and I'm sure he brings a smile to your face every time you glance at that rack!

Congratulations on that very fine deer!
