Last year was the first year Riley sat with me in the woods. We had a couple opportunities but it never panned out to make a good shot on her first deer. Well we looked forward to this season all year. Two weeks in a row we watched a couple different bucks walk away from us without a giving her the shot we wanted. Something about hunting the day after Thanksgiving! After sitting a few hours we spotted a couple doe slipping through the cutover. As we were looking for them we saw antlers! Big Buck Big buck I said. Riley got her gun up and waited almost ten minutes before we decided to take the neck shot. I was definitely more nervous than she was. (Dad shhh I’m trying to control my breathing) lol I watched him and waited for her to make the shot. Finally the crack of the .243 and he dropped in his tracks. Lasered it at 174 yds!
