First buck one day after his 8th BD

Danny got the invite to hunt a friends lease for his first buck. 20 minutes after waking Danny up from a nap, (tired kid he hunted hard for 2 days) we had 2 bucks come in to a feeder, the larger walked on by, and I scolded Danny for not being ready and on the gun when the deer walked thru a narrow shooting lane.

Just as the second buck entered the lane I saw the larger one comming back out, as the words to wait were comming back out of my mouth Danny sent one from his 6mm-250 into the second bucks shoulders, at 150 yards, folding him up.

Well he sure didn't hesitate on the second one!

I didn't deer hunt this year, had too much fun watching Danny pile up some venision.

I too was just past my 8th BD when I killed my first a nice Blacktail buck.August 5,1951.Man was my dad proud.Had just given me a Winchester 94 25-35 two days before.All the other kids were 13 years old+.
Great memories.

So I am scrolling down the list of thread titles until I see this one.


And I think: "now Jim is a pretty savvy hunter but how on earth did he know the deer's birthday? "
