Upstate hunter kills opening day buck

Brandon Pennington of Gaffney, SC got a quick start to South Carolina’s 2023 deer hunting season on opening day of gun season in Game Zone 2. And in a world of AR-15s, 6.5 Creedmoors and beanfield rifles, Pennington killed his first deer of the season with a single shot 12-gauge shotgun.

“Got in the stand late this afternoon and wasn’t even planning on hunting. Was sitting there less than 10 minutes and here he came out of the cutover to the edge of the creek. The good Lord blessed me again on opening day,” he said.

“The old single shot 12-gauge never lets me down.”
