HERSEY -- Elvis Peacock estimates that he\u2019s shot 20 deer in his lifetime. But it\u2019s likely he won\u2019t forget his most recent buck for a long time. Peacock, a Hersey resident, used three shots to bag an 11-point buck with 19 1\/2-inch rack span in late November in Mecosta County. He was hunting with his sister, her first time hunting, plus his dad. \u201cThat\u2019s the biggest deer I\u2019ve shot,\u201d he said. \u201cI\u2019ve been hunting ever since I can remember. The biggest buck I shot before this was last year, an 8-point that was 18 inches wide (rack span).\u201d Peacock recalls talking with his companions just as he spotted the trophy buck. \u201cI saw him walking right out, he was chasing a doe,\u201d Peacock said. \u201cHe was with another smaller buck. I got my gun up and shot him. He took off running. I shot at him two more times and ended up hitting him twice. The first shot hit him. But he took off running and I wasn\u2019t sure if I hit him or not. I hit him the first time, missed him the second time and hit him the third time\u201d Peacock was about 70 to 90 yards away when he made his shot. \u201cI\u2019ve hunted every day,\u201d he said \u201cBefore this, I passed up probably two to three small young bucks, That\u2019s it, nothing shootable. I\u2019ve seen lots of does and a couple of little bucks.\u201d Peacock has also bow hunted. \u201cI passed up a ton of bucks bow season,\u201d he said. \u201cActually, I shot a little buck with my bow this year. I had a couple of\u00a0 8-pointers. I didn\u2019t get a shot. My neighbor ended up shooting one of them, 8-point with (rack) 18 inches wide.\u201d But Peacock admitted being excited with his 11-pointer. \u201cI\u2019m super excited, it\u2019s the best deer I\u2019ve gotten,\u201d he said.
