I wanted to share this one with you guys, My son Zacgot his first bow kill last Friday evening. He has sat six times for three hours each & finallygot his shot he's been waiting for. I dropped him off Friday evening at a ladder stand, when I came back at dark to get him he had not only shot the deer but had already drug the deer back to the plot & was standing there beaming when I drove up. I pretty much freaked out.
He said that he couldn't shoot over the rail because he was too short although heis fitted with a safety harness he still managed to stand up on top of his seat without the deer busting him. The deer was standing at a slight angle quartered away.As he drew his bow the deer turned at even a greater angle. I had told him this was a good angle for a kill shot. At twenty yards he hit the last rib, went through the spleen, the left lung, & through the heart. The deer ran about 40 yards & Zac got to watch her fall. Pretty cool for a kids first bow kill. With all the deer I have killed in my life, this doe means more to me!!!!!! I'm mounting the deer for Zac. He thinks he's theCAT DADDY!!!
I would like to thank Robert, Anthony & the guy's at Outcast for setting Zac up with his bow.
Way to go Zac, you are better than me with a bow this year. And a much deserved :bowdown for you Dad. I cant wait for this weekend. Gun opens and this is by far the best two weeks of my year. Lots and lots of family and very low stress. Congrats again.
Thanks to everyonefor the nice comments towards my son, when he looks over these post with me & is able to see that people are proud of him, I feel that it gives him a sense of pride. He feels as if he has accomplished a goal that he had set for himself. Now it is my job to keep him humble! I know I post a lot of Zac's photo's. Please never feel that I am bragging on my son, I'm just a proud daddy & I realize justhow fast time goes by. I'm building memories every day I can.I hope I get to send another post every week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
