Loc: good ole texas
So my little man has hunted really hard this year. Not much luck at all for him up until this point. We hunted out lease in west Texas horrible storms made the deer movement slow. Hunted east Texas kinda the same deal. Well Thursday was his day!!!

We got in the stand late, had a tiny Doe come out pretty quick and leave. Feeder threw and we sat and waited. As my son sat looking threw the binos I noticed a little movement to my left. Out of the sides a deer could come from this was the worst side. Tree limbs! I whispered to Trent , hey buddy I see a deer. I noticed it was a buck. 8 point. About 10 inches wide. He was pumped till I told him we could only watch it cause it wasn't legal in our county. Well buddy I'll tell ya. Time went into fast forward and a stand still at the same time! So Trent keeps watching the lil 8 point when I see movement again. Holy moly, it's a spike!!! I say hey bud look left of that other deer. He spots the spike. He says can I shoot that one dad?! I say that's the one we have been waiting for!!!

Now the hunt just got serious!!! As the deer feeds down an old fence row he hangs up under an oak tree munching on what has to be last of the good acorns. We get all set up which wasn't an easy task. The deer isn't at the feeder it to my left. Of course my side of the stand. I position Trent on my knee with his 243. He looks at me and says ," dad I'm shaking to bad. I can't stop!" I tell him that's ok buddy. That's what it's all about. I won't forget that because I'm pretty sure I was shaking worse than him. Well ladies and gents the time presents its self. Trent is watching the spike through the scope. He tells me where he has the cross hairs. Right behind the shoulder! I tell him to take the gun off safety. He does but I told him don't touch the trigger till your ready to shoot. I was honestly afraid I was gonna mess up his shot but I was able to pul it together enough to quit shaking!!! Lol. BOOM!!!! The rifle goes off and the deer is hit hard. Only went 20 yards and dropped!!! We watch just to make sure but he was done. We high five and hug and talk about everything that just happened in minutes that seemed like an eternity.

We get down and we go to where he shot the deer and look for blood. Yes we could see the deer but I thought it best for him to find blood and track it the best he could. Not to hard to find!!! He made a great shot right behind the shoulder. Couldn't be more proud of my little man. Sorry for the long post. That was the short hand version. Lol.
