Deer of the Day -- West Virginia "Persistence Buck", Shawn McKeever

McKeever chased this buck for three years

The wait was worth it for West Virginia hunter Shawn McKeever, who after three years of chasing the same buck, finally got the chance at him when he made the mistake of moving past Shawn's stand during daylight hours.

The 6 1/2 year-old buck was harvested in late October this past year and gross scored 171 inches. Shawn used a Mathews Bow and Rage broadhead to drop his trophy.

Nice persistence Shawn and congrats on a most excellent deer!
