Grandson's 1st deer
« on: November 24, 2018, 09:16:29 AM »
Our oldest grandson got his 1st deer Thanksgiving afternoon, a 5 point.  Our farm is so messed up from Hurricane Michael that we decided to hunt on the lease property.  The pines there are only 10-12 years old and were not as adversely effected as the 25-35 year old pines on our farm.  We sat in a small utility trailer that had been converted into a "portable" shooting house.  It's been sitting in the same spot for a couple of years.  We had 2 bucks and 5 or 6 does come in from different directions about 4:45, took a while for one of the bucks to turn sideways and give Christian a broadside shot.  When Bambi finally turned, 14 year old Christian lit him up!  The little buck ran about 40 yards with the top of his heart missing.
I sure wish my grandsons lived closer to home!

Madgomer,  Florida requires "daylight fluorescent orange", 500 square inches above the waist line, while hunting on public property.  No requirements for private land.  The rule also does not apply during an "archery only season" on public lands.
