Sorry for the delay in the story, I had to get him to the taxi. So I shot him at the La Contessa ranch in Yancey. We had been hunting a different deer (an 8 year old) for the last 5 hunts or so but he never showed. We had seen this guy 3 times before. So there we are watching deer, hoping the old timer to show up. At about 6:30, just before it was too dark to see, the guide says "screw it. If you want to shoot that.." I don't even think I let him finish his sentence before I put the big boy on the ground. The 308 did its job and he never took a step. When I got up to him I couldn't believe how big he was! My taxidermist should have him scored tomorrow. Can't wait to see what he scores!

How in the world could you watch him walk away 3 times? How big was the 8 year old? Very impressed with the self control. How far was the shot?

I bought that rifle from a fellow tbh'er. It's a Remington 700 sps tactical with a choate tactical stock, timney trigger, tactical bolt. I put a Nikon prostaff 7 on it because I had it in the safe. Gonna go shopping for some better glass soon

If CCS stands for Carolina Crossing South, then yes I do lol. I live off Hamilton Place


I forgot to post this pic last night. I almost wanted to get pulled over so I would have had to show the officer the deer in the trunk lol

Yea...I live on Piedmont around the corner. I think I met you a few years back. We need to get together for a beer sometime. You already dropped off your buck at the taxidermy? I would have like to come see that guy.

Was I building a table outside? If so I remember you! Yeah he went straight to the taxi. I'm meeting him out there to discuss forms and stuff. You're welcome to tag along if you'd like
