Two bucks, two months apart, with very similar stories
Ashlyn Bowers of Pomaria, S.C. killed two fine bucks this season while hunting within walking distance of her parents’ house.
She shot her first buck, a 7-pointer, in October after watching it for three evenings before finally getting a clear shot at it with her Ruger .270. Then on Dec. 29, she killed an 8-pointer while hunting from the same stand. And this one was standing in the exact same spot as the 7-pointer.
To top it off, the 8-pointer pulled the same tricks on her as the 7-pointer, showing up three evenings in a row without giving her a clear shot before finally making a fatal mistake.
“I watched them both for three nights each before I had a chance to shoot them. I shot them both in the exact same spot behind my parents’ house in small town Pomaria, literally about two months apart from one another,” she said.
Bowers has plenty of land available to hunt, but she said she’s doing just fine hunting right there at the homestead.
“We have a lot of land here, but I usually just go behind their house in a deer stand. It’s worked out pretty well for me,” she said.
