This seventh grader shot a 6-point grossing over 130 inches!
It’s not often you see an exceptionally large 6-point buck. It’s probably even rarer a to see one that scores over the 130-inch mark with only six scorable points.
But that’s exactly what 14-year-old Kade Woods of Louisiana accomplished on Davis Island, according to Louisiana Sportsman. It was the teen’s first ever solo hunt and he borrowed his dad’s Remington .300 Magnum after Kade let his sister use his usual rifle.
His father, Kevin was hunting with Kade’s younger sister Kelsey while Kade’s older sister Meghan was also hunting nearby. Kade first passed up a smaller 8 point before dropping the big 6 point right near last light.
“We were actually packing up because it was starting to get a little bit dark and she’s not used to look through scopes, so we always leave a little early, especially in evenings, Kevin told Louisiana Sportsman. “We were fixing to get out of the stand, and that’s when we heard the shot. There’s no doubt when that .300 Magnum rings through the woods, so when I heard that shot, I looked at Kelsey and said, ‘There goes Bubba.’”
Kevin told the publication he was originally nervous about what his son may have shot because the club property they were hunting has a 4 ½ year old or older buck rule. No worries there, the big 6 point is estimated to be 4 ½ or 5 ½.
With 25 inch main beams and a 19-inch spread, the buck stretches the tape to 132 1/8. That’s definitely an impressive score for any deer with that few points.
The harvest has also made Kade a big fan of his dad’s .300 Magnum. “He had only shot it one other time, but now that’s he’s killed this big buck, he’s in love with it,” Kevin Woods told Louisiana Sportsman. “He said, ‘Daddy, I need a .300 Magnum now.”
Either that, or maybe dad won’t be getting that rifle back! Congrats on a great buck Kade!
