West Virginia Rifle Buck, Chuck Blankenship

There's nothing worse than getting caught with your pants down in the deer woods, literally and figuratively!  West Virginia hunter Chuck Blankenship can certainly attest to that. Blankenship had taken a break from scouting an area for his weekend hunt to "answer nature's call" when he spotted a great buck chasing a doe, " grunting for all he was worth."

Blankenship had to wait for the buck to clear thick brush along the base of the hill he was standing on -- the window was narrow and the shot had to be quick.

Just as the trophy came clear at the crest, the Mountain State hunter fired his  7mm-08 and the Nosler ballistic tip found its mark, dropping the buck!

Congrats on a great deer Chuck!
