Real People Real Hunters ~ RealTree Camo

Name: Jacob Shackleford
Date: 11/20/10
Harvest Location: Bledsoe
Size: 8 Point
Shot Distance: 50 Yards
Harvested With: Rifle
Story: Hunted hard all week with no results, was hoping opening morning of rifle season would be better, but sadly the morning started out kinda rough. I was just about ready to call it quits when I heard a crunch behind me and turned to see this beautiful 8 point easing through the woods. Made a great shot at about 50 yds, he ran about a 100 yds and it was all over for him. Most bucks don't get this big in my area due to idiots shooting them when they're small but I let this buck walk last year when he was a little guy. This just goes to show what a little qdm will do, he's not a monster but he's a great first buck.
