Adam Yelton drops Rutherford County brute

Rutherford County brute green-scored 166 4/8 inches

Adam Yelton of Rutherfordton, NC killed a 22-point Rutherford County beast on Nov. 19, 2022 after a pursuit that lasted 3 years. He said he feels grateful for the opportunity.

“I have lost sleep over this deer, been frustrated trying to pattern him, and everything else in between! I know Jordan Davis Yelton could kill me at times for chasing these deer, but I’m thankful she understands my love for the outdoors. Tonight I was able to take the biggest deer of my life and for it to be a NC deer makes it that much better. I’ve chased this deer for the last three years and thankful the lord blessed me with the opportunity tonight!!”
