As Oklahoma's dreamy 2017-18 big buck run continues, Edmond hunter Steven Everett writes the latest chapter with a massive 246-inch net non-typical rifle trophy buck nicknamed 'Goliath'
For Edmond, Okla., hunter Steven Everett, hunting has long been a part of the fabric of his life.
“I’ve been hunting since I was about 5 years old,” he said. “My dad [Johnnie] used to take me dove hunting in Mississippi, where I grew up, and told me I was his bird dog.
“I loved every second of going on hunts with him, but my favorite has always been white-tailed deer hunting,” he added.
“The excitement of seeing a deer and sitting in the stand with my dad and grandad as a kid is what I loved [most].”
And the hunter has the video to prove it.
“I got to harvest my first deer when I was 9 years old while my dad videotaped it,” smiled Everett. “You could see the gun shaking like crazy from the box stand on the video.”
Everett may have been shaking on Nov. 18 after harvesting what is sure to be one of the largest whitetails in Oklahoma history. The buck, nicknamed "Goliath," scored an amazing 246 net inches.
