My son shot his first deer on opening morning of the WI gun deer season. He made a great 1/4'ing away shot behind the leg with a perfect heart shot, hitting ribs and exiting the shoulder on the opposite side. She did the heart shot "leg kick" and a 30yd death run. Leaving a few tiny drops of blood in the snow. We never would have seen them on dry ground. He stood at last blood as I circled around. I took about 10 steps and found her laying. I walked up to her and said "I have real good blood here. Come on over."

He came around the brush and was all smiles.

As we found her. [Linked Image]

I told him he had to drag it out. But I walked back to the truck to get the Otter Sled and make it a little easier on him. He did pull it all himself. It was about 1/4-1/3 of a mile back to the truck.

It was a great morning to be an 11 year old kid. It was a great morning to be a 39 year old dad too.

Awesome! Congratulations to the young man and hat's off to you for helping to make it happen. What is he shooting for a rifle?

Thanks for sharing the pictures. Best wishes to both of you for many more memorable hunts together!

Congratulations. My best hunting memory was when my son killed his first deer.

Congrates on raising one right! His smile is something that will remain in memories forever. Youngsters' first harvests are always the best.

I can look at pics of kids with their deer all day long. Their smile says it all. They dont care , buck or doe. In some ways they remind us what hunting is all about.

You guys make me chuckle. Brings back memories! I shot a buck, my very first solo buck. Went and got my brother that was back in the truck all evening playing some 80's little handheld video game to help me gut and drag it out. Well, I lost my Swiss army knife inside the half gutted buck. We dragged it out. Biggest buck the family got. The ol' 243. deadly on west Texas deer.

I'm not sure he's fond of it. But, he knew it was part of the deal. He's been with me for a few that I shot, so he knew what was coming. He did want to wear gloves, which was fine with me.
