Fred Bricketto of Mount Pleasant harvested a fine 10-point buck, his best ever, over the Thanksgiving holiday. After hunting his lease in Hampton County all season, he still had no idea that this big buck was out there. The big buck did not show up in the bottom area that Bricketto was hunting until 5:50 p.m. and he came to the sound of a grunt call and a wheeze call. The buck came in broadside and Bricketto aimed his bow using the 20 and 30 pins, and when he let the arrow fly he said it sounded like a board hitting a tree - a solid hit. His son Logan arrived shortly after dark and they tracked the buck for 25 yards and when they saw it Logan said - Dad, you just killed a monster. The symmetrical 10-point went 185-pounds and likely had slimmed down some during the rut. The buck went to DeLoach's Deer Processing and a full sneak mount has been ordered from the taxidermist. With one month left in the 2010 deer season, this hunt report should give hope to those hunters who have yet to score some venison.
