Staff Report
HURLEYVILLE — November 29, 2013 — Justin Murry called it “the buck of a lifetime.”
The 15 pointer he shot on his grandfather’s property in Hurleyville last Saturday was the biggest deer he’s ever shot since he started hunting nine years ago. It also moved him into first place in the Democrat Big Buck Contest, scoring an impressive 80 in the Democrat’s measuring system which totals the left and right beam sizes with the spread. Murry’s buck had a 20.5 left beam, a 22.5 right beam and a 22-inch spread.
Murry, 25, of Liberty, shot the buck on the run and didn’t know the magnitude of his catch until he went to retrieve it.
“I didn’t realize what I had,” said Murry, who was hunting by himself. “I saw a big rack and thought it was a nice 8 pointer because I had seen a few 8 pointers that day. It was the buck of a lifetime.”
