Vicksburg resident Connor Whatley, 7, bagged his first deer on December 29. He took down the 8-pointer with a youth H&R .44. Connor is the son of Scooter and Necole Whatley, and the grandson of Harold and Jan Whatley, of Vicksburg, MS.
I happen to know Harold and Jan Whatley. I used to work with Harold at the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers and he's also the President of Brown's Point Hunting Club north of Vicksburg on Kings Point Island. I have met his son, Scooter, at the camp on numerous occasions when my husband and I belonged to the camp and Scooter was there filming hunts.
Scooter works with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks as a Segment Producer, Videographer, for the Mississippi Outdoors TV Program.
I am so proud of Connor on getting a very nice "first" deer in our great outdoors! Kudos!
