On November 30 2011 I shot my second deer. It was also a half rack.
Heres’ how I got him.
I just turned 12 so I couldn’t get my adult license, but I got a mentored youth program license.
It was a very bitter morning. It was snowing and I was very cold.
We hadn’t seen a deer all year so I didn’t know how it was going to turn out.
My dads friend, Jim Orr was going to put on a drive. I was very confident that he would push us something.
We were there an hour and a half and we didn’t see a deer. Jim ended up walking right to us. i was very surprised we didn’t see a deer.
We talked about what we were going to do next when Jim said he brought a good luck charm a little card with me and my dad and Jim’s close friend, Bob Korlewitz who had recently passed away.
We went down to a river bottom after that and Jim was going to push a rocky hillside.
About ten minutes in I saw two deer to my right. The second one was a half rack buck. He came right to us when someone shot at the deer.
It panicked and ran toward us!
He ran right under us when i shot him in the neck and he fell right over.
Jim was the guy shooting and he said he was sorry.
It was really a great ending to a great day.
