Default Melanistic, velvet, droptine buck down

This deer showed up the other day on trail cam. My son 9 years old was going for his first deer, but hasn't found what he wanted. He hunts everyday after school and morning and night during break. He passed a nice 10 a few weeks ago and I couldn't talk him out of it. After we saw this buck on trail cam he decided he would kill him. Obviously it's Christmas morning but he wanted to hunt. So we made the morning hunt. This buck walked out at 7:20 and he laid him out with his .243 150yds. I lost it when he went down. The joy was overwhelming. We high fived and made a beeline to the buck. He may not be melanistic but he's very dark. He is in velvet and had pea sized testicles. The freaky front sticking point also has a 1 1/2" drop off it. So much character. I just can't say how proud I am of him for putting the hours on stand and shooting constantly. Rough gross scored 144 7/8 with an 18" inside spread. Thanks for reading.
