On Saturday November,9th, 2013 I killed my 8 pointer while hunting in Person County. This is the first Big buck I ever killed while hunting without my dad and with a Muzzleloader! I had several pictures of this deer on my trail camera but this was the first time I got the chance to see him in person. Does were feeding all through the clear cut I was hunting, so I was on my A game watching for horns. My father had killed a really nice eight pointer the night before so I knew that the bucks were chasing does already. About 8:15 a doe came out of the wood line at about 130 yards and stopped for nearly 15 minutes before she went on across toward my fathers tower stand. not long after she got out of my sight I saw horns coming through the woods. Honestly it was one of those moments when I didn't want to focus in on his rack because I knew it would only make me more nervous. When he reached the clearing I already had my gun up and ready but he stopped behind a tree. My heart dropped because I feared I wouldn't get a shot on him. Not thirty seconds later he moved forward, I grunted at him, and as soon as he stopped I pulled the trigger. The buck whirled around, took a few steps back into the wood line,and crashed. I waited in my stand for about twenty five minutes then climbed down to examine my kill. When I got to his side, I saw that I has made a perfect heart shot! I had indeed bagged my buck for the season!
Hog we killed Weighed in at about 250 pounds. We hunt with black mouth curs and catahoula bull dogs. This hog was too mean to stab with a knife so we ended up shooting him with a pistol for the safety of our dogs but overall he was a great boar and definitely a hunt to remember.
My hunt started on the evening of Thursday, December 27th, 2012. My father and I were sitting in a soybean field in person county, North Carolina. The buck first appeared at about 5 o'clock and the sun was setting. He stepped out into the open and I said to my dad 'There is a big buck in the field directly in front of me.' We watched him for a few minutes as he ate and then another smaller buck came out. Then they began to fight which was very unusual for the end of December. A small doe was eating over to our left and she suddenly spotted us. She eased out of the field but the big buck being curious started walking closer to see what she had been frightened of. As he reached the distance of about 125 yards from us he turned broad side and I took the shot. At Dark we eased our way to the other end of the field and found a blood trail but didn't want to push him in case he wasn't completely dead yet. At 8 o'clock that night we came back to see if we could find my deer. We trailed him about 100 yards into the woods where he fell, the huge 9 pointer was down. I couldn't have been happier with my kill for he was bigger than any other buck I had ever killed.
