Chris Douglas kills Lee County brute

Lee County brute

Lee County brute left no blood trail

The rut is in full swing in central North Carolina, and Chris Douglas of Sanford took full advantage on Nov. 9, 2023 when he killed a Lee County brute. He shot the buck with a CVA .50 caliber Accura MR while hunting on the edge of a bedding area.

“We saw a total of four bucks that morning. He was walking to an active scrape and I shot him at 20 yards,” said Douglas, host of Carolina ALL OUT TV.

After shooting the buck, Douglas could not find a single drop of blood, so he put in a call to Low To Ground Deer Recovery. The tracking dog Cooper made quick work of the situation.

“Cooper made a quick, 60-yard tracking job. Turns out, it was a double-lung hit, and the deer left no blood trail,” he said.

This hunt will be featured on a future episode of Douglas’ television show.

“We captured it all on video for an upcoming episode of Carolina ALL OUT next year,” he said.
