    Paul, this one went 160" and some change and it was taken in the wild.

    That's awesome. I bet his dad was proud. But at the same time it makes me sick, Iv'e hunted my whole life, and have yet to get something like that, and then here you have an 8 year old with a first deer. It just isn't fair. WWAAAA (that's me whining.) Congrats to him though.

    Really great buck!!! I killed my first when I was 7. It was a spike. In my family, the day you come home from the hospital, you own 3 guns! When I was born, I had a 44 mag., a Remington .22, and a Daisy BB gun. The day my son came home from the hospital he got the same guns. The bb gun is still in the package. It all depends on how you are raised. I got to bow hunt in a tree by myself when I was 6, and then gun hunt alone when I was 8. I think it's wonderful that a young fellow like that gets to enjoy the outdoors, and learn how to be a responsable hunter. I hope he enjoys the chase for the rest of his life. Good job on the mount as well!

    God bless
  6. nice buck .. but the one i saw this year would make him look like bambi... why couldnt that buck come another hundred yards in.. WHYYYYYYYYY... 525 yard shot was a little to much for my 270

    Kids can shame you. I have a family that I do work for. The 15 year old has 3 B&C muzzleloader kills on the wall and 2 150" plus archery bucks to his name already.

    His younger brother has muzzleloader deer that go 155" and 168" already. Think he is 13 now.

    Can't wait to see what they drag in this year.
