Re: Son\'s First Deer
Very nice Buck! BUT!
You screwed up there letting him shoot that deer! A buck like that for a first deer, don't count on him for bringing home the meat. I can speak from personal experience, but it took me about 18yrs of hunting to get there. Now any buck I take has to be better than any previous buck I've taken. Last weekend I past up 4 very shootable bucks that 2-3 years ago I would have shot any one of them, but now they just weren't quite good enough. I've pretty much resigned myself to shooting scrub bucks (spikes and inferior/deformed antlers) until that one deer that makes me sh!t my pants walks out.
Non the less, I'm jealous. I've never had a chance to go after a mulie, and I sure would have shot that one!
