Thomas Carbone shot this 155-inch Mississippi buck after he, his dad and his grandfathers headed to their camp after wrapping up Thanksgiving festivities.

Thomas Carbone is glad his family stayed true to its Thanksgiving tradition — big dinner at the family home in Slidell followed by naps, football and ....

“Then all the guys leave and go to our deer camp in Jefferson County up in Mississippi,” Carbone, 18, said. “We’ve always done it that way. It’s a tradition. Me, my dad (Tony Carbone) and my two grandfathers (Tommy Carbone and Jeff Volker), all went to the deer camp and the next morning I killed the biggest buck we’ve ever killed on the property.”

The 11-point, a main-frame 9 with two stickers, measured 155 3/8 inches of antlers, had a 19 1/2-inch inside spread and weighed 240 pounds.

“He was a horse — with antlers,” said Carbone (pronounced Carboney).
