Backyard 9-pointer - Kershaw County
Anyone lucky enough to have killed a deer just before work knows the logistics that come into play once the quarry has been downed. How to load the deer without getting the work clothes dirty, how to get the deer to the processor without being late for work, and making sure the processor knows just how you want the future mount caped are all details that many hunters wrestle with while also trying to get to work on time. But none of that bothered Presler, because he works at Peach Orchard Deer Processing in Dalzell (803-499-9036). So it was a normal working day for Presler, interrupted slightly by the time it took to load, then unload, his own deer--two tasks Presler was happy to perform.
Never tell Presler that you don't have time to hunt. It's just not an argument that a country boy like him is willing to buy.
