Hunter: Jack Lester
Points: 8 (4L, 4R)
Monday the 19th was one of the last days we could hunt the big 8. So we went in to go hunt, and it was a really cold afternoon when we got into the blind. We have been hunting this deer all year, the year before he broke his rack and we stopped hunting him. As the afternoon went on we had not seen any deer, then my dad looked up and said there was a deer in the field. It was him he walked in and I looked threw the scope and I told my dad he is a giant. He was starting to walk in and then stood behind a pine tree, then his head was covered by a tree. But his shoulders I could see so I aimed for the opposite shoulder and I shot him and he almost dropped right there but he ran about 50 yards and we found him dead in a ditch and that is the story of the big 8.
