Default Public land 1st buck!

Well finally managed to help my 14 year old nephew get his first kill saturday right at noon and best of all on public land! We have been out a couple times trying to get him a hog with no luck and saturday morning we set out looking for a hog or deer. A hog actually came through about 9:30 but he just couldn't get set up on it to get a shot. We were hunting out of a ameristep ground blind and he was shooting off a primos shooting stick. Takes some getting used too. Finally the buck came in about 11:45 to our left. I saw him and knew right away he was legal. Once again he had trouble getting set up on him before the buck walked off into some thick brush. I took some time to give him some help and tips for setting up. Also it gave him time to calm down a bit. The buck worked its way right in front of us and we was able to get set up in a opening in front of the buck. As soon as he hit the clearing I grunted a couple time to stop him and he laid the smack down!

That is cool, good going on both parts. I only took one of my nephews hunting one time, never saw anything, other than turkey hens, that was the only time I was able to take him. So where were y'all hunting?

We were in Houston county. One thing with public land you just have to stick with it. Tough hunting but payoff is so worth it!
