Default Shane's at it again

My nephew Shane came down this weekend for the early youth gun season. We set up on my new plot where I have seen quite a few does munchin in the evening hours. We started seeing does coming around 6:00, and by 6:30 they were right in front of him about 75 yards. He made a great shot on the lead slickhead and she went down quickly. We were quietly celebrating for a while as we knew the other deer hadn't completely left the area. To our surprise, the other 6 does that were with her came back into the plot and went right over to where the deer was laying. I was watching/filming those deer as Shane tells me "buck!, buck!". Well, a 8pt. buck was coming in on the same trail that the does came in on. He never hesitated as he went through the gate and into the plot. Shane and I talked it over and decided it was ok to go ahead and take it. This was his first buck, and he was excited to get it. At the end of the night he had made two perfect shots and had two deer to be proud of. He is becoming quite the hunter, and I have enjoyed every minute spent in the woods with him. It is so different watching kids experience this thing we love so much, and I must say it is better to watch than to hunt myself. I am looking forward to him coming back for regular rifle season when we will try to chase the big deer! I will try to get the pics up later today. I also have video, but not quite sure how to get that on here...
