im only 12 so my dad walked me out to the shooting house which
was set up on a food plot. Then he went on to his place to hunt.There
was a fishing magazine in there so I was reading that. Time went
on and my dad had said earlier that right next to the shooting
house a huge deer came out but he had a bow and he was on the
other side of the food plot so he couldn't take a shot at it.
Well i kept looking at the trail where that big buck came out.
I was looking and i saw something that almost looked like a squirrel
but it wasnt, it was a tiny fawn and a doe following. I had already
made my mind up that i wasnt going to shoot a doe so i watched
them for a couple minutes.Then i turned to look on the other
side of the food plot and i saw a couple of deer. i threw my
rifle up to see if there were any bucks but there wasnt there
was 2 does and 5 fawns so i watched
It hadnt been 10 seconds and i looked in
some sage brush across the field and that 8 point stuck his head
up to see what spooked those other deer. He put his head down
but it was too late I knew he was there. i put up my 30-06 and
put it on his heart lung area which i could barely see and i
i said i guess there was 2 deer then (i was still in the shooting house) he was looking but couldnt see any other buck. i went out there and the other deer jumped up and my dad ran after him. the deer stopped and looked back at my dad and my dad shot with his open sight 30-30 and the 9 point fell. The 9 point weighed 183 lbs and had a 12 inch inside spread and the 8 point had a 16 7/ 8ths inch inside spread and weighed 201lbs. If you look to the right of me and my 8 point you can see the 9 point my dad got.
