Rockingham County hunter drops 10-point buck

10-point buck

He shot the 10-point buck with a bolt action shotgun

Chantz Campbell of Madison, N.C. was hunting in Rockingham County on Nov. 18, 2021 when he dropped a 10-point buck. Campbell shot the deer with a Mossberg 695 12-gauge, bolt-action slug gun.

It’s a buck that Campbell had observed for the past couple of years through trail camera photos. Unfortunately, in all that time, the 10-point buck was only showing up during the safe hours of darkness. Until the day before he shot it.

Once he saw the deer show up during shooting hours, the hunter wasted no time getting the buck in the crosshairs of his shotgun’s scope. He was in the stand early the next morning. And that day, the buck showed up around 7:30 a.m.

“I got my first daytime photo of the buck yesterday (Nov. 17). And I sealed the deal this morning (Nov. 18), said Campbell.

The deer dropped in its tracks.
