Arrowed this 130+ inch 6 point October 14th in Stanly County.
I have been hunting this deer all season! Have not seen him/her since mid-September until this afternoon! As you can see, she/he is still in pristine velvet! Passed on several 2 1/2s and 3s that were chasing! This deer stepped out feeding like it was the summer feeding pattern! Full velvet, no male organs (to speak of) and large teats. Biologist was able to inspect prior to skinning. Several possible scenarios as to why this happened! An incredible deer with a story to be told for sure!
I am running for County Commissioner in Stanly County in 2012 and have not had many opportunities to get out with my Z7. On the afternoon of Sunday, Oct. 21st I took the time and went to one of my favorite stands overlooking a overgrown field. Shortly after 5:30 several deer passed through, including a beautiful 2 1/2 7 point and a few other 1 1/2 bucks. At 6:10 the 7 point returned and began feeding on browse 10 yards out. He heard movement behind me and decided it was time for him to leave! Shortly after this 205 lb. 8 point, 12 inch G2s stepped out behind a doe and offered a slight quartering to shot at 15 yards. Z7, Mayhem carbon and 100 gr. Muzzy entered behind right shoulder and exited opposite side at last rib. Deer ran about 40 yards before crashing! All in all, a prefect ending to a beautiful day in God's Country! We are BLESSED to live in the USA and particularly North Carolina!
