This afternoon I was hunting with my son. We have been hunting together for about 3 years. He has never killed a deer. It always happens that I got the shot. We went today because yesterday was his birthday. I really wanted him to kill one. We went to a field that I have seen deer in but never hunted. We got set up and everything was going ok. The homeowner showed up and walked out to us and talked with us for several minutes. He was telling us about the deer coming up in the yard. He walked back in the house and we got back set up. It has not even been 10 minutes when a what I thought was a nice doe walked out. My son got ready and with 1 shot dropped the deer in its tracks. We were tickled to death. We were high fiving walking across the field to the deer. To our surprise the deer was a buck. Both of his horns were broke off at the skull. Also noticed that where they broke from was not very big. Has anyone else noticed anything like this. Also love reading the post here. Have really learned from some.
