On Monday morning November the 9th a group of bowhunters were conducting a deer population control hunt on Bull Island in the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge. David Shull is President of the South Carolina Bowhunters and he reports that at 7:45 a.m. this 'old' buck that was still in velvet stepped out. After the a spine shot from a bowhunter that dropped the buck in his tracks, the deer was weighed at 150-pounds - which is quite large for a barrier island buck which might suggest that he carried some age. Great work in the Lowcountry outdoors by the S.C. Bowhunters - members in the S.C. Camo Coalition.
