Being a college student, the only time i have to hunt is during thanksgiving and christmas break. i have had him on trail all of november and have no idea where he came from on our 100 acre halifax county farm. hes moved from one portion of the farm to the other end in just a week. I knew i had to stratigize. i hunted to where he moved to all week but he never showed up. i figured someone else killed him. on saturday at 5:10 he made a fatal mistake! at 250 yards he gave me a head on shot and i busted him right in his chest with my .270 remington shooting 150 grain core lok bullet. he ddnt even take 10 steps. halifax county battles northhampton county every year with annual deer harvest and this is why, the quality and quantity of bucks we have to offer. his g2s were 11.5 inches long, his brow tine was 6 inches long. he was 16,5 inches wide. for the past 4 years i have only killed 2 bucks, an 8pt 18 inches wide and this one. ive been letting smaller bucks walk and the results has been amazing! I am studying animal science and i will be attending Veterinary School in the fall after graduation.
