My 12 year old son Seth bagged this big 8 pointer in Caswell county on Nov 14th. He dropped this big boy with his remington 700 .243 at 4:20pm about 100 yards from his stand. This hunt was special for him it was his first time in the stand by himself. He saw a couple does come in the field then about 10mins later this big boy came in looking for the does. He told me he passed up a smaller buck earlier waiting on a big one he says. Well looks like his patience paid off. The buck was 21in inside and was rough scored at 140. I'll never forget hearing him shoot and then my phone vibrating. I answered and he said dad big buck down! big buck down! I shot a monster. I'm very proud of him. His last nice buck was in Dec 2007 a 19in inside 6 pointer taken at 190 yards. It was the last time he and my dad hunted together. I'm sure he was looking down from heaven and enjoying every minute of this hunt.
