Story: Austin Sackett age 7 harvested his first deer on 1-4-01. The deer was in a field with one other buck and three Doe's. As Austin watched the deer enter the field the two bucks began fighting. This only went on for a moment then the deer began to feed. Once Austin decided it was time to take a shot, he zeroed in on one of the bucks at about 90 yards away. Nightfall was coming fast, however the buck turned sideways and Austin fired his .256 Ferret rifle. The deer mule kicked and ran into the cutover and then Austin and his dad heard the deer fall. Austin was very excited. He went up to look for the deer and it was laying in the cutover.
