My Very First Deer
November 16th 2008, a day after the opening day of deer season.
I was 14 and I really never went hunting before but I really wanted to.
So around 2 o’clock my dad and I walked to our hunting spot just behind my house.
We sat for about an hour and I just set my head down and closed my eyes for a few minutes.
I raised my head to look around, I looked to my left and then I looked to my right when I saw the most beautiful buck I have ever seen.
He was coming out from behind a couple of trees and was walking my way.
I was shaking like no other as I raised my 12 gauge.
When he was walking in front of me he was only ten yards away.
I Shot him just above his left shoulder and he flew to the ground.
My dad and I ran up to him when we both realized that he was a 10 pointer.
I had to shoot him a second time to finally kill him.
It was the most awesome experience of my life.
He was just a beautiful buck.
