Story: "I was able to harvest this nice buck using my Dad's old lever action 30/30 which he used as a young man. He passed away in January of 87 and for years I desired to try and take a good buck using his old gun even if it meant hunting with it all season. So I decided that this was going to be the year to try and do just that. Well, as it turned out it wouldn't take that long as everything came together within the first hour of daybreak on opening day as I was able to get a shot on this buck coming through the woods trailing two does to within 25 yards of where I sat on the ground leaned up against a big hickory tree. After the shot, I thought alot about my dad and hunts he took me on when I was a kid and I just wished he was there and well, in a way I guess he was."
