    South Carolina Whitetail

    Currently staying with friends in South Carolina - with access to whitetail hunting ;-)

    Spent a while in a deer stand last evening , and again this morning. Saw a couple of does , and bunch of young bucks , and one big buck that is one of the two biggest ones one the property according to the trail cams .

    In the stand at about 6.20 in the dark this morning - virtually no moon so pretty dark. Watched several small bucks saunter through the feed plot , in the mist. Then at about 7.00 a big boy and a small buck ghosted in to the clearing. Checked him out in the binos , got the ok from the owner to shoot , and decked him with a single shot from the Weatherby Mk5 .270. About 60 metre range , in the mist with visibility coming and going.

    heres some pics

    nice buck. I like the tree stand .looks like we need some of those genetics for the island herd.

    South Carolina has small whitetails , and these ones are smaller by local standards. Buck I shot was about 160 lb live weight , and an older animal .

    I doubt the current regime would allow any new genetics into the Stewart Island herd though .

    Nice buck. They grow just as big on the Island, and sometimes bigger.
