Watch Here: Michael Pitts Kills a Huge Georgia Deer

Everyone knows Realtree's Michael Pitts is good for a hunting camp joke or two. He’s also good for killing a big deer.

In this episode of Monster Bucks, Pitts tries his luck on a giant Georgia buck during the early season. He's set up near a persimmon tree, and this gnarly old guy with a double throat patch and hanging velvet strolls into range. Who knew southern states had bucks with tank-sized bodies like this one?

“As you can tell from the sweat on my brow, it is very hot,” Pitts says. “It’s early season here in Georgia. Temperatures are around 90. But we’re still seeing a lot of good deer movement. The past two evenings we’ve been getting caught in storms. We’re praying for no lightning tonight. It looks to be good.”

Despite his prayers, thunder still struck. But in a good way.

At the risk of sounding weird, this is truly a beautiful deer. (Realtree photo)
