Story: Took my 6 yr old son on his first deer hunt. After a few hours of "Shhh...sit still or the deer will hear us" 3 does stepped out and all I could hear was my son saying "shoot the big one daddy, shoot it daddy!" Well I cocked the hammer on my Muzzle Loader told him to cover his ears. Shot was a little far back but we had a good blood trail, my son was on it like a blood hound. Spotting blood on trees, leaves and vines. I had to tell him to slow down, he was going to fast for me but he was on the right trail. Well we found her laying in some thick stuff still had her head up so, I told him we better back out and let her die. Went back to our blind and packed up and headed to the truck. When we got to the truck my son says, "Daddy! Daddy! here comes our deer!" I look up and she was rolling down the hill straight to us. She stopped less than 30yrds from the truck! I could not believe more tracking and no dragging! My son is loving it, he can't wait to go again. Good times!
