Hi my name is Kenneth Mott I am 15 and I have been hunting since I was 8 and I love it. If I could do it for a living I would. I live for opening day. Well I’ll tell you my story now. It was November 28, 2010 and it was cold that morning. It was 20 out and I went and asked my dad if I could ride off to East Center Point, the other piece of land in our hunting club with my best friend Ronda and he said ya sure thats fine. I have been wanting to hunt this one spot all year but I told my self that I wasnt going to set foot in there until the rut and I did just that. So get to East Center Point at 5:00 am and I looked at him and said I’ll meat you back here at 10:00 and he said no you dont need to get down that early. I haven’t seen my buck until 11:00 and I said ok and we started off to our stand and I got in my deer stand at 5:40 . When day break came I could hear something walking through the woods and I was looking all around then I look up and there is a little 4 point walking through the woods. Then I said to my self that this is going to be a good moring deer are already moving . But I sat there and sat there and I havent seen anything else yet this but that little 4 this morning . About 10:48 I see that I have missed a call from my dad so I call him back and he asked me if I have seen anything and I told him about that little 4 I saw and then he said you ready to get down I’ll come get you and I said no sir I am going to stay in here for another hour or two and he said ok and hung up. I sat there and 5 minutes later I hear something stop beside me and I thought it was a doe or that little 4 I saw earlier but no I look to my left and standing there looking dead at my was the BIGGEST 8 POINTER I ever saw in the woods. So I cocked the hammer on my single shot 308 and I watch him walk out in front of me and I yell for him to stop and he stop right behind a tree so I waited for him to walk again and I yell for him to stop and he stop and I had only a hole about as big as a baseball and I took it and down he went and I went to hooting and hollering and I had to call my dad and when I told him the news he came as fast as he could. I never thought I would see him that happy. He was so happy he was crying. I am so glad my dad got me in to hunting . I LIVE FOR HUNTING . I hope all the hunters good luck on the up coming season .
