McALESTER — For Quinton Picone, 23, a native of nearby Panola, first times seem to be the charm. At least first-time hunting trips, that is.
On his first deer hunt on October 12 at the 45,000-acre McAlester Army Ammunition Plant, Picone harvested a nine-point buck that weighed just shy of 200 pounds on the hoof and dressed out at 175 pounds.
The buck set a base record for the heaviest deer taken on the property, and Picone's name now will appear first on that list.
