Waist Deep In Mud, Hunter Still Goes For The Big One


After a long week of buck hunting with no success, local hunter Gary Ward decided to find a less frequented place to hunt in southern Fulton County and chose a spot near the Little Tonolway Creek. What he didn’t take into account was the terrain, and he soon wound up waist deep in mud and still sinking. His cries for help flushed out the big buck he had been looking for and undetered by his precarious position or the mud and grass on his rifle’s scope, he managed to get off a shot that sadly missed its target. Ward’s cries for help, however, did not go unheeded and he was soon resuced by nearby hunters. Here, Ward is rescued with a rope and the assistance of the hunters and Needmore Volunter Fire Co. Chief JR Sigel, right.
