Bladen County hunter takes huge buck with blackpowder rifle


BLADEN COUNTY, NC (NORTHCAROLINASPORTSMAN.COM) -- Chris Campbell from Elizabethtown slipped into the woods Saturday intending to cap a long day of working on stands, corn piles and shooting lanes by shooting a doe that his son, Zac, could take back to NC State.

He wound up killing the biggest buck he’s taken in 25 years of hunting, a 150-inch, 10-point Bladen County trophy.

Even more interesting? Oct. 13 was the first day of gun season in eastern North Carolina, but Campbell carried his .50-caliber muzzleloader into the woods because he needed to discharge it so he could clean it and put it away until next season.

Good thing the buck didn't....

...have a rifle itself to fire back at him!
Any photo's of possums killed from the highways and byways and back road hollers?

Guess you must be a vegetarian?

Haha, your comment is laughable. Venison is delicous to top it all off.

Let me guess, your not a fan

Let me guess, your not a fan of hunting. Mankind has only been killing animals since we were put on this earth. I bet that dear tasted delicious!!!!!
