    this is my son with his 1 st buck / deer. i've carried him deer hunting since he was old enough to wanna go. when he was younger i would sit with him and as he got older he would sit in a stand by himself. he would see a few deer now and then and some times a small buck. he would never shoot anything and i ask why. he said i don't wanna shoot a little buck daddy i wanna kill a big one. i was happy at the same time kinda sad. i wanted him to shoot a deer while hunting with me even if it was a small buck. several yrs later 11 / 3/ 10, we went hunting on our farm and i ask him where he wanted to hunt he told me so i went about 200 yds to another field. about 4:15 i hear a gun shot but it kinda startled because it was behind me. also i just had got to my stand. i thought a second or so and called my son, finally answering his phone i said did you just shoot ? he said yes and daddy i think i got the biggun. i run to my truck drove to where i left and didn't see him. look to my left and saw him and the deer about 75 yds away. so i backed the truck down the field to him really not expecting to see much horns on the deer and when i stopped got out and walked to the back of the truck my bottom jaw almost fell off. it was a really nice buck and my son was on top of the world. after struggling to load him and getting home, we looked him over. 6 pt, 5' bases, 10' g-2's, 18's inside spread. very nice buck. so i'll stop now and just say this was the best hunt of my life and hope many more fathers will experience the same thrill i had.
