Brian Moore of Forsyth is celebrating the kill of a lifetime this week after he shot a lO-point deer that he's been chasing for two years on Monday evening. "lt~ the kill of a lifetime," said /v~oore. Moore said he had captured the giant deer on a trail camera ,at a hunting lease on Maynard's Mill Road several times over the past two years but said he would only come out at night, too late to shoot. But this year, said Moore, the trail camera was capturing the buck about 10 minutes before dark. So even though it was a toasty 97 degrees on Monday, Moore put on shorts and a T shirt and got into a deer blind. Moore watched three does hanging around for about an hour while praying, "God, please let that buck come out/` Finally, 10 min- utes before dark, the buck emerged from behind him. He passed about 15 yards from Moore's blind and approached the does. Moore said he could feel his heartbeat in his head he was so nervous, but he managed to pull his bow string back and launch an arrow into his side. The buck ran about 100 yards before finally collapsing. Moore texted his hunting friends David Rogers, Skibo Rose and Case,/Robinson that '1 got the big one." They all came quickly and helped him pull the buck up the hill in the stifling late summer heat. Moore said the buck mea- sures about 130 on the Boone and Crockett score. Moore, the pastor of New Providence Baptist Church, said he's already thought of a way to weave his biggest-ever kill into a sermon. "Good things come to those who wait" said Moore. Moore said his wife Amisha has agreed to let him get a shoulder mount of the deer. The rest will be used to feed their family of eight children. Moore said he and his oldest son Jacob kill about 6-7 deer per year to feed their family for 12 months, noting they only eat venison meat. Moore said it's the first time he's hunted in shorts but said after pulling the buck 100 yards through brambles and briers, it might be his last, even with the happy result.
