Hunt Story

I was in the stand with my dad and my little brother Hutch. It was about 6:45 and I was asleep and my dad wakes me up and said to me there is a buck. This buck is walking rapidly across the back end of the field. So my dad gets his gun up and looks through the scope to see if I am able to shoot the deer or not. As he is doing this, I am getting my gun up just in case I am able to shoot it. Then my dad gets this big expression on his face and says “ it’s a shooter”. So I get on the deer, my dad zooms in my scope for me. I get on the buck and I hold steady. Then I shoot. After I shot, he looked at me and said “I was about to get my phone so I could video you.” "How was I supposed to know. All you did was zoom in the scope and say nothing. I wasn’t going to let this BIG buck walk away,” I replied. After I shot, Hutch kept on begging “Can we go track the deer now” every minute that passed. After about 30 minutes, we went to look for the deer and found blood right away. The buck only ran 50 yards in the woods. I couldn't believe how big the deer was when we found it.
