Nathan Smart: Two hunts, two bucks

Nathan Smart

Eleven-year-old Nathan Smart of Lenoir, N.C. killed a nice whitetail buck in Alleghany County with a free-handed 70-yard shot from his Knight muzzleloader. The following Saturday, the young hunter was back at it on the opening day of rifle season. And this time, he downed an 8-point buck with his Marlin .30/30 lever action rifle.
