I began hunting George Jones in 2021 after he showed up on camera on October 5th. Even though I had over 275 pictures of him I only saw him in person one time during the rut and was not able to get a shot with my bow. He then disappeared during the gun season and I thought he had been killed. However, after gun season closed he showed back up on camera until I took the cameras down in February. During the 2022 season George showed back up on camera in October. I was able to figure out his pattern and in November he began frequenting a place where I was positive I could get a sighting. The week before gun season I saw him twice with no shot opportunity. The second day of rifle season he came in following a doe at 4:15pm. He went down in his tracks with one shot from my Dad's 30-06 he left me after he passed away. George Jones is 10 point with a split brow, forked G-2, and trash on the base of the left side. All of that combined makes him a 15 point mountain buck!
Grace Silver killed her first turkey on the opening morning of the youth season in western North Carolina. The bird weighed over 20lbs and had a 9.5' beard and 1' spurs. Grace shot the turkey at 25 yards with her muddy girl camo Mossberg 20 gauge.
Here is Grace with her bird again. This is her favorite picture.
