Busy weekend with hunters and much excitement. Saturday morning started out slow with many shots heard all around us but not from any of our men. Then bang ... but nothing. Our great nephew Chase shot at a doe but it got away. Disappointment!
Around 3:30pm, they headed out once again. At about 4:40 we heard shots, then Chase running in the door yelling Luke got a buck!
We whooped for joy as it is Luke's first hunting experience and with one shot in the neck at 75 yards he bagged an eight point buck.
I was never so proud and excited. We jumped on the four-wheeler, tagged and dragged it to the shop where the engine hoist was ready for gutting.
Neighbors nearby were at the shop immediately to check it out. Many handshakes, pats on the back and then the cutting began.
The rule around here is.... if you shot it, you gut it. Luke had no problem and Loren our brother-in-law guided him along.
After the messy job was done, we headed to the house for a huge turkey dinner to celebrate.
Unfortunately the rest of the weekend turned up nothing else but there is still 2 and 1/2 weeks left to fill all the tags. We aren't too worried. LOL
Luke and I are headed to Canada tomorrow for some appointments so I will be back on Wednesday. Have a great evening!
