Our son killed his first ever mule deer last night! He has been watching this buck for the last week when it moved on to the ranch. Collin, Modocer, and his grandfather went to the orchard and saw the buck with about 20 does. Collin and Modocer did some maneuvering and Collin took a rest on a fence. After the does and the buck milled around, the buck finally separated himself from the herd, turned broadside and Collin squeezed the trigger. The buck jumped, ran for about 20 yards, then collapsed. Modocer said Collin squealed, reaching octaves only dogs could hear, and jumped around yelling ”Daddy I got him! I got him!!”. He hit the buck in the chest, missed heart and lungs, but clipped an artery, and broke both front legs. The copper bullet punched right through without mushrooming. It was a pretty exciting evening at the ranch last night! 3E1916F3-06F7-4E22-831F-175AD7B91F06.jpeg915BAA08-164C-4612-A205-0053C24714A5.jpeg3C86C4CD-8EC7-4F3E-B084-BB903C105C6E.jpeg1DD21918-D362-4277-B1C6-069B4ED51A85.jpeg

Life is good. Doesn’t seem like he should be old enough. Enjoy this time because it goes too fast. It will seem like next week when you are posting your grandchild’s first deer.

Congrats to your son on an awesome buck - and congrats to you guys for passing on the traditions. In other news, X3b is dismal this year! I know close to 15 hard core hunters that are struggling to find more than a couple does this year. I think we’re in for an extremely low success rate this season...
