His Dad describes the action: "We saw a 3-pointer and about 15 wood ducks early, and just before dark I saw a deer moving through the woods. I told my boy, "There's a deer". He says "yes, I bet it's an 8 pointer, being funny as we had been messing with each other all evening. When I replied, 'yes it is', you could actually hear his breathing change. The buck came out in the open and I gave him the go ahead to take the first good shot. As soon as I said 'shoot him', I see another deer behind the first buck. Turns out it was another 8 pointer. I took a second to try to see which was better. The first buck was wider but had skinnier beams and shorter G3's. I told him to go with the second deer which was narrower with longer tines and just a prettier rack. I was watching through my scope (as a back up) when his rifle popped and I saw the impact on the buck's shoulder. He made a good two hops and was down. Needless to say, we were both very excited. The buck weighed188 pounds. It was his sixth deer, and his biggest."
