Fifteen-year-old Clayton Luedeke of Miltona already has two big bucks to his name during his hunting career and the latest would make the most-seasoned hunter envious. Luedeke shot this big buck while hunting on the evening of November 11 just north of Miltona. "The buck walked out with his head down," Clayton's brother, Brandon, said. "Clayton was in his stand.
