I went into this area on Oconee National Forest knowing it held some bigger deer. I’ve been blessed to harvest a few bucks out of the section. I went in the morning of October 8th and saw a small buck and got run out of there right after by a pretty bad storm. I gave it a break that evening knowing I needed to get back in there the next morning on opening day of primitive weapons. I got in there a little early on October 9th waiting on daylight. I had that feeling something good was gonna happen. I was hunting an oak/pine hill top on the edge of a pine thicket/bedding area. Around 8:40 that morning he appeared out of the thicket and came out into the white oaks. He presented me with a 65-yard broadside shot with my .45 cal CVA muzzleloader. Once I squeezed the trigger he ran about 75 yards and fell down. I waited around 40 minutes and went to retrieve him. Once I got my hands on him, I called my brother David and good buddy Andrew to help cart him out. It was a blessed day!!
