Lincoln County hunter bags 233-pound buck, ‘The Big Nine’

Lincoln County’s Quinn Jordan got his 2017 deer season off to a good start with this 233-pounder, whose antlers scored 140 5/8. Jordan bagged this deer, which they call “The Big Nine,” on family land around Hazlehurst Nov. 20. The Big Nine had been shot by game cameras all during the offseason, but he went down when he was shot by Jordan’s 7mm Remington Magnum from almost 200 yards away.
