  • 'The Tobacco Buck'

    On the rainy opening day of muzzle-loader season, I looked over my shoulder through the blind window just in time to catch this buck bounding out of the end of the tobacco (which normally would have been picked) row about 85 yards from me. He looked back at me as if he knew I was there. He had gotten downwind of me on his way through the tobacco, headed toward a hedgerow separating the field from I-95. I had just enough time to grab the gun, take a knee and stick the barrel through the window. When the smoke cleared he was laying where he had recently stood. I had 1 trail cam photo of this buck 5 min. before dark and an hour and a half after I walked by the cam the same day. I did not know just how big he was until I got close to him. He was my 1st black powder kill and I couldn't be any happier, especially since he was taken near home in Johnston County! There is no way I could have taken this buck without the help of the Lord Almighty. It all fell together so perfectly and quickly, that my heart rate didn't have time to get up while staring a 10 pointer in the eye and the shot was great. God is good!

    Thanks and I appreciate your report on posting to help us all. I didn't post to win the contest, but to show fellow NC hunters what God has put out there for us to hunt and the unlikely places they can be found. This week, I shot my first coyote 30 yards from where I killed the big boy (which, yes, is certainly going on the wall). The buck you posted is nice, too. Where did you find that ole' boy? Nice to know you and good luck this season.

    Thanks Gobblintom!
    I see you have taken some fine bucks, but your turkeys are what impress me! There's nothing like them. Lots of game out there I want to try, but I don't think any hunt can compare to that for the turkey. Keep em gobblin'...keep dropping em too!
