One great winter day in Carroll County Mississippi December 24th first day of the hunt. Me and my dad went and sat on the biggest food plot we had. Cause I knew if we pick that one I would get a MONSTER. First thing walks out on the field was a BUCK but.. it was a cull buck, but my dad said it would look awesome on the wall so, as I look through my scope on my 308 and I got ready and Boom but that was not my shot. It was my uncles but it scared off the buck. so we wait 10 minutes and already 4 doe`s come out on the field, then a little spike, then a buck. By this time I can barely see cause it is getting so dark but I knew it had horns so I waited and tried to stick it out till the edge of dark. By that time there was 9 deer on the field but only one got shot. I shot a little 5 point, first deer, first time I ever shot that gun and first shot, that buck dropped right where he was standing.
