Default Man I screwed up this evening..

My 10 year old girl put a great shot on a deer this evening. About 530 or so . I made the mistake of not letting him sit long enough. I knew better but we were both so excited. He had blood pouring out of both sides . Jumped him about 75 yards from where she shot him . I let him sit a hour after that . Made it across two small property lines . Crossed into one I don’t have permission to be on. So I had to back out . I plan to talk to them tomorrow. Hope I can at least recover the horns .

Strummer I usually agree with many of your post or comments.


This one above the necessity for age minimums. For hunting. Yes we all know 3 people who shot a buck with a .410. Reality is. Large game need to be held for older more mature audience or shooters.

That sucks but it happens. My wife shot a deer 15 years ago. We watched it hit the ground. Three of us get out of the stand and weren't really in hurry...we approach and he got up and ran for 200 more yards. I was trying to explain that some times we lose em when we stumbled upon him. Dual lung shot with a .260 Remington.

Ouch. Wishing you the best of luck for the young un

Absolutely nothing wrong with a 10 yo shooting! I’ve probably only taken 1 that was older than 9. If they can shoot a gun at 30 yards they can shoot a crossbow at 30 yards or less

If I’m reading this correct, you’re saying kids shouldn’t be allowed to hunt deer?

Good luck in the morning OP. I bet you find him quick tomorrow.

I disagree sir. All my kids had killed many deer and hogs before they were 10. I wouldn’t trade those time for the world and didn’t need politicians telling what age I can take MY kids hunting. You must not have kids?

Yeah I hear ya bud. When I bought my Slice of Texas in Edwards Co. I made it a point to meet every owner who borders me just for an occasion such as this. We all agreed that if “we” were trailing a wounded animal “we” were allowed to proceed with a simple call/text afterwards as to why/when “we” crossed. In the 4yrs being out there “we” haven’t had a single issue on this subject matter. Hope you recover your little one’s deer.

Let us know. My old lady shot two deer. Liver shots. They both made it a lot further than I looked. The buzzards help. Move slow. When you run out of blood look for the trails. Good luck.

It looked like it was double lunged . Shot was good . Blood was great up to where it bedded down . After I jumped him it wasn’t great but I followed it another 300 yards . Before it crossed into the property I don’t have permission to be on. I do have his name and number now . But I was told not to call him this late.

Hate that for the kiddo, I’m sure she’s disappointed.

As for the age of the shooter……these days there is so much competition for a kid’s attention if you don’t start them fairly young you might lose them to something else. Keep on your path !

I would give him a holler. I would be ecstatic if a young hunter shot something and it crossed my property and I could help somehow.

Just from that description, sounds like liver and maybe 1 lung to me. As long as the landowners work with you you’ll find him laid up in some thick stuff tomorrow. Blood probably won’t be great. Keep an eye out around water if you have any near by.

Wrong! Grown men have just as much chance of wounding something as a kid, I’ve seen it many times. Sounds like the little girl made a good shot and it was a small mistake by the OP not giving the deer enough time (due to excitement for his daughter). Good luck on the recovery OP.
