I am 17 years old and from Pelion, SC. I had a great start to the season by getting not one, but two big bucks in Lexington County. I got a 10- point and a 9-point, both in full velvet. The 10-point had a drop tine on the left main beam and had an inside spread of 17 and 1/2 inches and weighed 215 lbs. The 9-point weighed around 150 lbs. I used a Ruger .308.

After a bit of a slow start to the 2014 turkey season (both in terms of gobbling activity and encounters), the tables turned for me on Sunday morning. I was trying a new spot at a hunt club I recently joined on Saturday and had located a big bird strutting with a hen in the middle of a soon to be planted corn field the day before. Unfortunately, I didn't locate him until 8:30 am that day and he....  Read More
