America’s Oldest Hunter? 103-Year-Old Hunter Bags Biggest Buck of His Life
OutdoorHub Reporters 11.21.16
Here’s a feel-good hunting story for you. A 103-year-old hunter bagged the biggest buck of his life, and his granddaughter was right there with him to witness it all.
On November 8, Clyde Roberts, a 103-year-old hunter, went out to his trusty old treestand and bagged the biggest buck of his life. He was hunting with his granddaughter, Christin, who said, “I will never forget it.”
“Papa like to tell everyone that I got so excited… of course I did!” Christin said. “Not only had I been able to hunt with my 103-year-old grandfather, but I witnessed him take the biggest buck of his life. Most importantly I had the hunt of my lifetime with him! It was one of the most awe-inspiring moments of my hunting career. I will never forget it.”
Her grandfather might just be the oldest active deer hunter in the country, and being with him on this hunt is a moment that Christin will be able to cherish for the rest of her life.
Christin posted a picture of Clyde with his buck on her Facebook, and in the post she wrote, “the best part was when he knelt down and thanked the good Lord!” If that doesn’t send a chill down your spine, I don’t know what will.
Congratulations on your buck Mr. Roberts, a great deer and an even better story to go with it. Keep hunting those bucks, sir!
