Bladen County hunter takes huge buck with blackpowder rifle
BLADEN COUNTY, NC (NORTHCAROLINASPORTSMAN.COM) — Chris Campbell from Elizabethtown slipped into the woods on Saturday, Oct. 13, intending to cap a long day of working on stands, corn piles and shooting lanes by shooting a doe that his son, Zac, could take back to N.C. State.
He wound up killing the biggest buck he’s taken in 25 years of hunting, a 150-inch, 10-point Bladen County trophy.
Even more interesting? Oct. 13 was the first day of gun season in eastern North Carolina, but Campbell carried his .50-caliber muzzleloader into the woods because he needed to discharge it so he could clean it and put it away until next season.
