Story: Fourteen year old Austin shot this fine Davidson County buck near White Creek, TN. Looks like he may have had some help from his little stepbrother Patrick
The day before, I had seen many small bucks and several Does but I did not take a shot. The next morning I had not seen a deer and it was very cold. At 8:45 I heard something in the thicket to my left and a Doe came out. The Doe started running and the buck chased her. I yelled and the buck and it stopped behind me about 25 yards away. I shot him in the heart and he only ran about 50 yards downhill. The deer's left antler was cut in half.
