Hunter: Jack Barron
Points: 9 (5L, 4R)
Dad picked me up Monday after school, and we rushed home to get our gear together to get into the woods. We were in the stand by 4:15. We were in a double ladder stand overlooking a clearing surrounded by big woods on the left and thick privet on the right. We expected to see the deer cross the clearing 50-100 yards in front of us, but instead they came out right next to us. The first deer we saw was a doe and fawn that came to the edge of the clearing to our left. They walked down the edge of the clearing for about 50 yards before crossing. Five minutes later another doe came through the the same way with a big 8-point right behind her. By the time I got the gun on him he was looking straight at us at 40 yards. Dad told me to put the crosshairs on the middle of his chest and squeeze the trigger. He dropped in his tracks.
