woo hoo!

Friday evening he popped a doe at about 60 yards with a neck shot..

This morning nothing was moving and we went out on a stalk hunt.
Came to a clearing with the wind in our face and get setup behind a tree with a good view.  About 5 minutes later a doe comes out.. a few moments later, a buck comes out.

About 125 yards out and oblivious to us.  Definitely a mature buck, nice 8 point.  Not a trophy but a nice cull/management buck for a kid's first.

He gets into position with a branch on the tree serving as a good rest and lines up.  I could hear him telling himself to "calm down, breathe"  The buck started walking off quartering away into the brush, Sean let's out a whistle, nothing.. he yells "Hey Buck!" and it freezes and turns it's head back at us.  BOOM!  down it went.  I am watching it through my scope and see the hit.

A few moments later we went down knowing he nailed it in the white patch on the neck..

Shooting an old Sako 243 with 80g TTSX and a green dot Trijicon Accupoint.. he has earned confidence with that setup.

So proud of my boy!

Way to go!!!
On a side note, your son looks remarkably like my youngest brother at that age- a good looking kid and a good lookin' buck, for sure.
