Jake gets it done

Post  VABuckSlayer on Wed Nov 19, 2014 4:35 pm

Took my 12 year old Jake out yesterday evening and sat in the Banks Blind over a food plot. We had a couple fawns come out early but Jake was going to wait for a buck or a mature doe. About 4:50 a good size doe came out in the plot. Jake said he wanted to shoot that one so I got his .243 out the window and he got settled on her. I ranged her at 115 yards and his Nikon was zeroed at 100. I told him to put it in the center of her shoulder and just back in the crease (she was slightly quartering away). He took the safety off and made the shot. The deer did a back flip and went down. It got up and went about 15 yards and then went down for good. Jake hit her right behind the shoulder and the bullet exited the front of the opposite shoulder. Perfect! He was so excited and I was so happy for him! High 5's and hugs and tears... it was just an awesome moment for dad and son! A hunt we will never forget. This was Jake's second deer and the first with a rifle. He has taken both his deer with one shot each. I think he can shoot better than me! lol I have been truly blessed this season to take a deer with my bow and a nice buck with the muzzleloader but more so having Jake get this deer. Thank you Jesus for all you do for me!

Also yesterday my buddy, Ryan's 8 year old Ashton shot his first deer just before Jake shot. It was a nice 7pt buck (had a broken g-2). The boys doubled up to make it even more special. Was just an amazing day and I couldn't be more thankful to experience that with friends and family! God is good!
