Hunter killed a white buck in Forsyth County
Michael Hall of Stokesdale, N.C., had a white buck on his radar for two seasons.
He finally got it in his sights the afternoon of Nov. 15.
Hall, who was hunting in Forsyth County, dropped the unique buck, which carried a 9-point, typical rack, shortly after noon.
“I saw the buck early that morning chasing does. I went back in at 12 p.m., planning to sit until dark. When I reached my stand, I heard deer chasing immediately. Within 5 minutes, I could see white running through the woods. He was chasing does again,” he said.
At 75 yards, Hall put a slug from his .50-caliber Thompson muzzleloader through the buck, which dropped on the spot.
“When I reached the deer, I knew I had something I’d never imagined,” he said.
A couple of days later, Thompson entered the buck in Carolina Sportsman’s Bag-A-Buck contest, and on Dec. 1, he was drawn as the winner of the monthly contest for November.
Hall’s prizes include a 1-year subscription to Carolina Sportsman and a Sportsman prize package that includes a True knife and other goodies. He, along with every subscriber who enters the contest, will be eligible for the grand prize: a 3-year subscription to Carolina Sportsman, a 2-day deer/hog combo hunt for two people at South Carolina’s Cherokee Run Hunting Lodge, and a Sportsman prize package that includes a Millennium M25 Hang-On tree stand and other goodies.
Hall was hunting an area that featured hardwoods joining a swampy area.
