Well now that its all over till December antlerless and my stuff is getting back together I will tell a story of one of the proudest DAD moments in my life. I had my little hunting buddy perched up in a 2 man ladder on our opener. We were out in the field on a big oak tree looking back at the woods. When shooting time came upon us you could hear the sounds of deer chasing in the woods. Out came a small 4 point. I asked him if he wanted to shoot him and anthony looked at him in the scope and said " No daddy I want a bigger one ". I said ok and we watched him run around like a wild man. About 30 minutes later Anthony was frantically pulling on my sleeve. He said ' Look daddy there is a deer ". I looked down the field and there was a buck walking. I grabbed my grunt call and hit it a few times. The buck stopped, turned to us and came running. When he was broadside at 25 yards I stopped him and thats when the smoke flew from my little buddies muzzleloader. At the shot I couldnt tell if he had hit him or where he went for that matter. I saw a glimpse behind me through some brush and then it was gone. We waited about 15 minutes and got down. As we walked over to where the buck was standing and there was a few big kick ups. I looked over to the last place I saw the deer and there he layed. I grabbed anthony and almost broke his back when I hugged him lol We then went to him and started taking pictures.

I was crying and just and absolute mess. I was so happy and I couldnt believe how it all unfolded. I looked up and wow there was a good buck coming across the field about 180 yards out. I didnt have much time to look at him but he looked nice. I had my gun laying on his deer and we were in a cut bean field. I dive down on the ground and grabbed my gun. I used his deer as a rest and took a shot when the deer was around 160 yards. He bolted across the field and flipped out about 120 yards away. You talk about a hunt. I didnt know what to do with myself. I will never forget november 10th 2017 for the rest of my life.

On the last saturday I took out a yearling doe for roasts. I guessed her to be about 80 lbs dressed. I didnt mess up any meat on her and ended up with 6 very nice roasts and 2 pretty backstraps out of her for the freezer.

Then on the last day I called my good friend and asked him if they were hunting and he said yes. I invited them to my lease and they gladly accepted. At 5pm what looked like a big doe came out on me and my little buddy. He looked at me and smiled. I knew she was in trouble lol. He took the 75 yard shot and it was over. Down in a pile. It turned out to be a broken off spike that we could use a doe tag on.

Shortly after we heard a shot and we hoped paige was on the board. Then 10 minutes after that we heard 2 more shots and I was pretty sure the last one connected do to the slap after the boom.. This time I got a text that said we will see. After taking care of anthonys spike we went around to check on them. We found blood and a short tracking job later there was paiges first buck. What a week!!!!!!!!!

That's cool. Congrats.
My biggest fear is that when I die my wife will sell my guns and fishing rods for what I told her I paid for them.
