Default Lillie's first BUCK!

We hunted until 10 this morning and didn't see anything. Left and came back at 2:30. Action was slow on this full moon but this little 5 point came out at 4:30 to eat persimmons. It stopped behind the same rock she shot her doe at last month and we had to wait it out.


After what seemed like 5 minutes, it stepped out, quartering to a little. She was on my lap again and said she was on him. At the shot I thought I saw a hit but it ran and disappeared behind a big cedar. Never came out. Good sign.


We got down and I walked about 30 yards and saw the white belly. I said "whats that?" She said "I don't know?" I said "that's your buck!"


We were celebrating and I got the pack out of the stand and had the gun unloaded, propped against a tree. I look up and of course, there goes a nice 8 point running a doe right past at 40 yards. Sure would have been nice to double up but I believe ole pap, the pack mule had enough today. I am having sinus issues and am hurting. Brought in firewood yesterday and got a snootfull of dirt. Makings of a good sinus infection. Think I'll probably sleep in tomorrow. See how I feel.



Here's a shot of both of us.

Way to go Lillie, nice buck!

Good to see you taking your grand daughter out Charlie, Iím sure she was very excited.

My son Shane (14) was able to take a buck last Saturday, a bigger buck than I ever shot, we had a good day. We had 2 deer to cut up, he shot a doe and buck within a half hour.

Good to see you guys are doing well,
Stan

Fantastic! So heart warming to see our youth being brought up in the sport of hunting. Those are wonderful memories she'll carry with her all her life and pass them on down to her kids possibly some day. Congrats to her and anyone would be proud to take a buck like that. It's nice to see posts like this.
