Brock lives in Jackson county and has a real honey hole to hunt. I reported, at the start of gun season, Brock’s success on a dandy 8 pointer. Today it was pouring rain, and Brock’s dad Bradley (A seasoned hunter himself) said to Brock “no sense hunting today, as deer don’t move in the rain!” Well Brock has been around the block with his dad once to often and decided to go anyway. Pops strung along just to humor Brock!
Brock was in his tree stand at 7;00 o’clock and 30 minutes later a huge 8 pointer sneaks in to his right in an open shallow swamp. Brock pulled his muzzleloader up, but his scope was so full of water he couldn’t see the deer. He quickly wiped it off and had one shot as the deer was prancing away. The buck ran about 50 yards and crested a hill where Brock lost sight of him. Brock got his dad and neither could find a blood trail, but there were some turned over leaves which they followed to a swamp. One trail went right and one went left. Brock went right and Pops went left. Bradley gave out a yell and Brock came running. A huge 8 point was laying at Brads feet, and remarkably there was still no blood! Brock was smiling ear to ear as he stared at his soaking wet father! He was so glad that this “bad boy” did move in the rain, and he was in his tree stand to prove it!
Brock was using a muzzleloader, but could find no exit wound even though it was just a 30 yard shot. The blood stayed in the body cavity! Some hunters would never have found this deer. Brock scored on a very nice 8 pointer last year and seriously thought he would have to wait many more years to beat that deer. Now just a year later he beat it with not one but two deer! So is it alright to assume Brockster shot a 24 pointer? (8×3=24)
