16-year-old Hunter Shimer takes #4 Buck of the Year

Hunter Shimer of Keystone Heights, Florida killed this amazing 11-point on opening day of the 2014 black powder season (Oct. 18, 2014) at around 8:30 a.m. while hunting in Putnam County, Florida.

“I was sitting in my climber stand in a oak tree when I heard deer around me, so I began to grunt,” Hunter said.

“A small buck came in. As I watched him, he began to signal that something else was coming. In a split second, this 11-point walked into range.

I raised my Knight muzzleloader, took aim and pulled the trigger. When the smoke cleared, I saw my buck of a lifetime lying there,” the 16-year-old said.
