Scooter's 255lb. Illinois Buck!

Vicksburg's hometown resident Scooter Whatley spent the first weekend of November bowhunting in Pike County, Illinois.  Although he has been bowhunting for 20 years, he had never actually shot a deer - - until this trip.  On the first hour of his five-day hunting trip, this 8-pointer with a split brow tine wandered into view.  Whatley took his shot, and hit, taking down the 255-pound buck.  He spent the rest of the week videotaping the hunting adventures of his friends on the trip, but he was the only one among them who harvest a deer. 

Scooter is my friend on Facebook, and I have known him ever since I started hunting at Brown's Point on Kings Point Island back in the late '80s.  He was videotaping hunts back then.  I actually worked with his Dad, Harold, who was also the President of the deer camp back in the late '60s and early '70's.  I hunted out of his deer stand as well.  

Scooter is a Producer/Director/Videographer-MS Outdoors TV and Marketing at Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks.  Also, was a freelance camera operator-Southeastern region at ESPN.  

My congratulations on Scooter's fine harvest in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors!  I'm so proud of him.
