10-point buck was hunter’s target deer

During a late evening hunt on Aug. 26, 2021, Jimmy Williams of Ridgeland, S.C. killed a trophy Jasper County 10-point buck. The deer has been green-scored in the 130s. It weighed 190 pounds.

Getting a shot at this buck was no chance meeting. Williams had spent many hours pursuing this deer. He had seen it numerous times, and had plenty of trail cam photos of the deer. He shot the buck with a Sako 7mm Mag from 150 yards away. Williams was sitting in an elevated stand overlooking a field when the deer presented him a clean shot.

“I’ve been hunting this target buck hard every morning and evening since opening day. A lot of lost sleep and hard work went into killing this deer! This deer is definitely one for the books. And to have shared this memory with my wife, son and my dad is priceless,” said Williams.

As excited as Williams was to finally kill the trophy 10-point buck, his young son was just as excited.

“My son’s first reaction was ‘wow, what a monster buck! Do we get to eat him?’” Williams said.

About a week before pulling the trigger on the 10-pointer, the hunter had another good day from the same stand.

“Six days before harvesting this 10-pointer, I was able to harvest a 7 from the same stand. Glory to God for allowing us to enjoy His creation in the way we do with family and friends!” he said.
