Story: "It was the next to last day of the first of Tennessee's split gun seasons. I was not very hopeful about this hunt. My dad had instructed me to not shoot any deer that I would not mount. At 9:30am I heard him walking up behind my stand. He looked nervous at about 5 yards from my tree then looked up at me. I was trying to get the .270 into position but I had to freeze. He looked at me then bounded off to about 50 yards and stopped. I fired and got out of my tree and went to the truck where I called my Dad. I knew I had a hit but did not know how good. I did as my Dad has always instructed and did not push him. Two hours later me and my Dad tracked him 60 yards where he lay in a depression."
