My son shot his firt deer tonight. It was a broken off 6pt. He was out about thirty yards. He shot him with a youth model .243 and he dropped him in his tracks. It was a great heart shot, but man I have never seen a .243 do that... As a long time bow hunter, I have only shot two deer with a rifle. It was the coolest thing ever to be there for his first deer. I told him I was there for #1, and wanted to be there for many more.... he smiled and said "deal". He is 9 and was almost as excited as I was....haha... what a great feeling to start a life long tradition! Now to get my daughter to put one in the freezer and this year will be complete!
