Check out the buck Eva Shockey harvested in North Carolina.
With a news feed full of big bucks this time of year, it's sometimes a little tough for one to stand out from the rest. This one does, and not just because it was harvested by the current face of hunting, Eva Shockey.
What made this giant North Carolina buck unique was the fact that Shockey grounded it without a camera crew present. It was, according to her, the first time she'd EVER hunted without a lens focused on her.
✨My first North Carolina buck!!!!!!!!✨ Whattt!?! I turned down a nice 8-point because he was a bit too young and minutes later this NC brute came cruising by. The best part of this entire experience is donating the meat to @hunters_for_the_hungry for people who need it - being a hunter is just the BEST! 🦌 #fieldtotable #huntingseason
You can tell, even at this point in her career, how exciting this sort of thing still is for her.
If you read Shockey's caption on this next Instagram photo, you'll get an idea of what this meant to her.
That is, without a doubt, one of the best bucks we've seen so far this year, and it couldn't have happened to a better person.
Congrats on the deer, and extra congrats on doing it for yourself, and keeping the cameras out of it!
