210-lb Sumter County Buck
Zeagler, who was hunting in the Sumter County hamlet of Horatio from a two-man stand with his dad, knew the buck was a shooter, but said the deer didn't look quite that big through the scope, but was glad he misjudged its size.
Sumter County outdoorsman Marshall French summed up Zeagler's feat. "I've killed over a hundred deer in my life, and I've never killed a 200-pounder," said French.
An avid hunter and native of Savannah, Georgia, Zeagler was on his first hunting trip in the Palmetto State, but I doubt it will be his last. Great job Lane!
