Tanner Hornback was hunting with his mother in a ground blind when his 8-year old eyes and rifle scope gave him a view of a giant buck.
Young Hornback had seen a giant buck following a doe he was about to shoot. In fact, his mother had given him the green light on the doe when he hesitated. She couldn’t clearly see what he was seeing — the big buck — and after seeing it had to make sure it met their club’s standards.
It did, and Hornback put the crosshairs of his .243 on the mark and dropped the buck. The big 10-point weighed 247 pounds and scored 160 inches. It was one of the biggest ever killed at the club, which is near Vicksburg.
