va kid giant buckFrom North Carolina Sportsman: For sportsmen who battled the elements to attend this past weekend’s Dixie Deer Classic, the trip was worth the effort, especially for those interested in the annual Big Buck Contest, which sent a 10-year-old Virginia boy home with its top prize.

Fisher Whitlock, 10, of Bassett, Va., won…for a 15-point non-typical buck he killed in Henry County, Va., on Nov. 11, 2014, with a blackpowder gun. The buck scored 180 2/8 points.

As the story goes, Fisher was walking toward a stand with his daddy, Johnny, when they spotted the monster. “The diminutive, bespectacled boy” stopped and shot the 15-point non-typical with a .50-caliber muzzleloader.

“It was my fifth time deer hunting with my daddy,” the boy said. “We were walking down a road when he saw the deer in the briars… (The buck) fell right there. I called Momma and told her I’d killed the deer I prayed for last night.”

Proud of you Fisher. You’re a great fellow Virginia hunter little buddy!
