Story: "This is Derrick's first deer. It was foggy that morning when we pulled off the old logging road. I took my binoculars and scanned a pasture for any sign of a deer. As I looked to the far corner of the field I noticed dark spots everywhere and couldn't tell what they were because of the fog. Derrick and I walked down the woodline to get a closer look and when I topped the little rise I could tell what those dark spots were. There had to have been at least 40 deer in the field. I told Derrick to get a good shot off on one of the closer deer. He raised the .270 and squeezed the trigger. After all the comotion and deer running everywhere there was still one deer left in the field and that is the one in the pic. Great first deer Derrick!"
