9-point buck took a swim in the Neuse River
Maddox Bevell, 13-years-old, killed a 9-point buck in full velvet on Sept. 10, 2023 in Wayne County, NC. He shot the deer with his bow shortly before the end of shooting light. His family joined him to search for the buck until 11 p.m. That’s when they realized the deer had fled into the Neuse River.
Early the next morning, Bevell and his dad launched their boat on the Neuse to search for the deer. They found it in a log jam 1/4-mile downstream.
