George's Star Buck

Last Saturday George shot his first deer. It is an eight point. (For all you non-hunters that is a really big deer!) He is eight years old, so we tell him he'll have to shoot a fifty point when he's fifty.

The proud hunter, George with his extremely proud brother, Samuel.

Daddy and the boys. (And, of course, the deer.)

The boys and Big George. George was hunting with Big George when he shot the deer.

George's notes:
We were about to get down when he walked out. He was on the other side of the field (about 200 yards). It took about 5 minutes for him to come to the other side where we were. When he was about 25 yards away I shot at him and missed him. (I brought 4 bullets). Then Big George put a bullet in the gun. The deer just stood there. I shot again and he fell down. We got down and I shot him. He kept breathing. I shot him for the last time. He was dead.
