Brock West kills Cumberland County buck


Cumberland County buck had been showing up on trail cameras

Brock West of Fayetteville, NC killed this Cumberland County buck on Oct. 21, 2023. The 7-point buck weighed 180 pounds, and had appeared on trail cameras, but was never spotted by the hunter until the day he killed it.

West was hunting from a tree stand in a wooded area when the buck showed up and offered him a clean shot at 25 yards at about 6:40 p.m. One load of buckshot from his 12-gauge dropped the deer in its tracks.

“This was my first deer hunt, and I was in the stand about 2 hours. Friend are saying I should quit now while I’m ahead!” said West.
