Summerton teen kills monster 8-point buck

Teen huntress dropped monster 8-point buck in its tracks

Olivia Wilson, 16-years-old from Summerton, S.C., killed the biggest buck of her life on Nov. 14 in Clarendon County. The 8-point buck’s very symmetrical rack taped out at a green-score of 147 inches. The rack’s inside spread is 20.5 inches wide.

Wilson was hunting from a tripod stand overlooking an open area, and was reading her bible when the big deer showed up. She’s an experienced hunter, and usually studies the rack of a deer for a bit before deciding whether to shoot it or not. But this time, she said that wasn’t necessary. Wilson immediately picked up her .270, aimed, and pulled the trigger. The deer dropped on the spot.

Buck Koon of Carolina Crazy Outdoors caught up with the young huntress and got her story on video, with a good look at the huge antler rack of the monster 9-point buck.



Congratulations to Wilson, who is now entered in our Bag-A-Buck contest. This makes her eligible for a number of great prizes. That includes the grand prize, a two-day, two-man hunt at Cherokee Run Hunting Lodge. Click here to view the Bag-A-Buck gallery or to enter the contest yourself.
