On the morning of Oct. 22, Jason Carter, of Glennville, killed an 18-point buck in Evans County that grosses in the mid 170s. The buck is a main-frame 10-pointer with more than 14 inches of abnormal sticker points.

“I got in there about 4:30 and waited on daylight,” said Jason, 38, who began hunting when he was 5 years old. “I had a little 8-point come through about 8:30, and I let him walk,” said Jason.

Jason reports that it was foggy on the morning of his hunt. He was using a Tink’s Buck Bomb and grunting during his hunt. At 7:15, two big-bodied deer crossed the back of the food plot, but the thick weather conditions just didn’t allow him to see what they were.

“At 10 o’clock, I was going to get up and check the trail camera to see what they were, to see if it was the big deer I had on camera,” said Jason. “When it got 10 o’clock, as I went to stand up to go check the trail cam, this deer came out running, and I shot him.”

The big buck immediately piled up, and Jason had the biggest deer of his life on the ground.

“The biggest I had killed was about six years ago. I killed one that was a 142-inch 8-pointer, but this is a personal best by far,” said Jason.

Jason’s buck will not be entered into GON’s Truck-Buck Contest because he was not a subscriber when he killed the deer.

The 18-pointer is expected to net in the low 170s as a non-typical.
