    On Oct. 1, 2008 a fellow from Mint Hill, a bedroom community for the City of Charlotte, NC went out in the woods to his tree stand with his archery equipment. He got up in his tree stand around 5:45 PM and around 7 he saw a fine buck come into a clearing, approx. 100 yards away. The wind shifted on him and he just knew the buck would pick up his scent, but the wind shifted again and almost died down. The buck came within 35 yard before the hunter let go a carbon arrow. His well place shot dropped a 220 (estimated) pound white tail deer, with a 19 point rack with a score of 152. The racks main beams were 26.5" and 26", longest tine was 9" and the outside spread was 22" according to the article.

    The information that I have furnished came from a story in the Charlotte Observer by Tom Higgins, dated October 12, 2008.
