Who knew that Barney Rubble’s next-door neighbor would be part of a story about a huge buck killed in Louisiana’s Sabine Parish?

But Fred Flintstone’s name indeed came up when Stoney Cotton of Zwolle discussed how he killed a huge 11-point buck on Nov. 3 that measured 150 inches.

Cotton said he was watching two does in a shooting lane in front of his 8×8, elevated box blind in a stand of pines that morning when he turned around and looked out the back window of the stand, and there was this trophy buck easing across a lane behind the stand.

“I Fred Flintstone’d my way across the stand in my rolling chair,” Cotton said. “I had to take my gun out of the window and roll across to the other window and get my gun up. When I got ready, his head and neck were in the woods, but I had a decent shot.

“He mule-kicked, so I knew he was hit good. I went down there and found blood. He fell about 70 yards up into a big oak thicket.”

Cotton, 56, busted the buck at 140 yards with his Remington 7600 rifle, chambered in .30-06.
