(Moncks Corner sc)
Opening day for doe season my son and I get in the stand. It’s still pretty warm out. We sit there for about an hour before I see him reaching for his youth model 243. I stopped him and said what do you see? Over to the right of us he points out a deer walking out of the wood line. I see that it’s a yearling only about 50 yards away. I tell him to go ahead and get his rifle in position and wait because big sister will be coming out with it for it is the same deer we have been seeing on our game cameras. We watch this deer for about 5 minutes and I could see my son shaking and panting. I asked him if he wanted to go ahead and shoot this one or wait, of coarse he said he wanted to shoot it. It turned broad sided about 40 yards away. I told him to go ahead and take a shot if he wanted to. BANG he dropped it in its tracks, perfect heart shot. Wow I’m impressed with my 11 year old son. After the shot I did’nt think he could breathe any harder and we where full of smiles.
