My son's first buck 9 pt

Discussion in 'Deer Hunting' started by SIMPLEARKANSAN, Dec 31, 2007.

  1. I posted a thread earlier in the year about my 8 year old son taking his first doe with me. He went with my dad to south Texas over the Christmas school break and killed his first buck. It is a 9pt about 15 inches wide. He shot it out of an elevated blind from 130 yds with a .223. Dropped in its tracks. There were 4 other young kids down there with him and they all scored on 8 pts or better. When I get the film developed, I'll post all the bucks. He's already begging to go back next year!:thumb: His grandpa has to alternate hunts with 5 other grandsons. Only two are old enough to hunt, so we'll just have to wait and see. These are pics taken at my parents once they arrived home Sunday. My 4 year old and 2 year old missed their brother and had to get in the pics too. You can tell my 2 year old is very sick and running a fever, but you couldn't keep him inside!:smack:
