I am always thrilled when I hear a story of a young hunter killing his or her first deer. In this contest entry sent in my Billy Murphy from Virginia a proud dad tells how his young son not only shot his first deer with a muzzleloader but a monster too at the looks of it.
Congratulations Austin on a good buck and good luck in the contest.
Big Deer Contest Entry # 7
On Nov 14, 2009, my 10 yr. old son Austin Murphy had shot this 10 pointer the last day on muzzleloader. My daughter Parker who is 7 years old wanted to go with us. This hunt was in the afternoon the weather was little drizzle. We set up on the edge of a field at around 3:30, at about 4:10 2 does has walked out into the field. Within minutes Austin said, “Dad there he is I never saw the Buck". I grab the shooting stick and Austin put the muzzleloader up and made the shot.If you would like to enter our 2008 Big Deer Contest and become eligible to win a fantastic prize, provided by the good folks at Versus Country, read the contest entry rules here.
