“The morning hunt did not go well as we had to deal with some houndsmen and their bear dogs on public land and a broken firing pin on his own rifle that proved to do us in for any success. it seemed. So we headed on to my parents in Covington and opted for some private land in Alleghany County.
After borrowing his Grandpa’s 30-06 we headed for the woods. Nathan put the smack down on this good sized doe at about 80 yards offhand. Needless to say we were both overjoyed at him getting his first deer. I know he is hooked for good and I couldn’t be more proud.”
Eighty yards off hand! That kid is a natural! Congrats to both of you and glad the day worked out.
