Wilson's Jeffrey Boykin won the monthly North Carolina Sportsman's October Bag-a-Buck contest.
Wilson's Jeffrey Boykin won the monthly North Carolina Sportsman's October Bag-a-Buck contest.
Jeffrey Boykin of Wilson had a big two weeks, beginning in mid-October.

On Oct. 19, he killed a 10-point buck on his family's farm near Rock Ridge in Wilson County.

On Oct. 30, his wife gave birth to his first child.

Four days later, he was picked as the winner of North Carolina Sportsman’s October Bag-a-Buck contest.

“It’s been a great time,” Boykin said. “I already had some great news, and this makes it even better.”

The prizes Boykin receives for being the monthly winner include a North Carolina Sportsman T-shirt and decal, a copy of Cooking on the Wild Side by Ty Conti, the magazine’s publisher, a Tink’s Scent Kit, Realtree caps and Monster Buck DVDs, a Plano storage box, a Line-X truck bed liner and a shotgun from Spring Hill Outfitters in Kenly.

Boykin remains eligible — along with every other contest entrant —  for the grand prize: a 2-day deer hunt with Fourth Generation Outfitters, a Leupold scope and another Line-X truck bed liner. The grand-prize winner will be drawn in time for the prize to be presented at the Dixie Deer Classic in Raleigh in March 2010.

Boykin had between 20 and 30 trail-camera photos of the 10-pointer, beginning at the end of July. He hunted the buck through archery season without seeing him, but when blackpowder season arrived, he missed the deer on Oct. 15.

Four days later, he was back in a tower stand overlooking a food plot planted in clover. Shortly after 6:30 p.m., a doe came bouncing out of the woods toward the clover, with the big buck in tow. At 120 yards, Boykin whistled loudly to stop the buck, then fired his .270. The buck ran straight toward his stand, stopping 50 yards out, where Boykin put a second shot through him.

The buck took off and barely made it into the foods before Boykin heard him crash to the ground. He and his father found the buck about 50 yards from where Boykin had taken the second shot; an examination of the buck showed that both shots were right on the mark.

The buck weighed 184 pounds, and a taxidermist scored the rack at 115 Boone & Crockett Club points.

“I remember telling my dad years ago all I wanted was a perfect 10-pointer,” Boykin said. “Many hours of hard hunting, a food source and being selective made it all a reality.”
