Yesterday evening my oldest took his baby brother out trying to get him his first buck. They saw plenty of deer but as my oldest said, out of 25 seen22 caught their wind. I was out at a different property moving stands and setting a few DPs and had been sitting in the truck watching a green field waiting for a call. It was getting dark so I decided to head on to the house. As I was going through the gate I got a call. Brennan said CJ wants to talk to you. CJ got on the phone and said guess what I just did? I held my breath as I muttered, what??? He said, I just shot my first buck and hes a biggun!!
Thank God no LEOs were out because I made it to the other property in record time. On the way I asked Brennan if I needed to stop at the house and get a good light? He replied, dont think so. I saw blood through the optics and he high kicked at the shot. He said it was right at last light and I believe he made a heart shot.
When I got there they had pulled down to the stand in his truck and we just used our phone lights to find where he was standing at impact and a steady walk following blood to a cypress swamp. The buck made it all of 50 yards total after a 100 yard shot. Whats even better than a first buck? Taking that first buck with your very own rifle he had just gotten for his 7th birthday.
My son had pics of this buck since it was in velvet. He called it Roman because of its humped nose. The velvet pics were over 1000yds away from where the deer was killed.
Were getting a Euro mount on a little pedestal so CJ can put it in his room.

I bought him a Ruger American .243 and topped it with a Vortex Diamondback. The best thing to get a kid and some might think its cheating is a Bog DeathGrip. Weve used it in ground blinds, tower stands, and even ladder stands. Dry fire practice lead to live fire practice lead to actually shooting deer. Hes 2 for 2 with both deer recovered less than 50 yards. Hes shooting 95gr SSTs and CoreLokts. That DeathGrip also takes away a little of the kick. He shot that deer at last light and said fire came out the barrel lol. Some may think a .243 is too small a cartridge, but shot placement rules. Practice, practice, practice. Every year its all the same, dry fire before live fire. Once they get the trigger pull down, its a dead deer every time.
Oh yeah, editing to addEarmuffs!!! He has shot my .308 (same rifle different caliber) off the DeathGrip and never really knew the difference. As long as they dont hear that BOOM they dont really notice the kick.
