Default First Deer in 45 years!!

One of my favorite days ever! My Dad has always been selfless and let everyone else hunt. The other night a BIG buck (for our area at least) came out and I told him he had to take him. This is his first deer in 45 years!! And what a memory! We were both shaking and I’m forever grateful for this experience with him. The week was amazing and I just can’t say how much I love my ol’ man and these experiences with him.

I put the video together of this hunt and you can see the pure joy on our faces. This is what it’s all about!

That same deer walked within 4 yards of us and didn’t care. We don’t think he’s been hunted (definitely not in our place) or may be deaf lol. He was starting to rut too.

We did too. It took him about 30 minutes to come in about 50 yards. He was pretty wary!

Thanks guys! He said this buck cost him 45 years of hunting licenses hahaha. When I told him I think I was more happy having him shoot it than me, he said “now you understand”!
