Michigan Youth - 1st Bow Kill and 1st Buck

My 9 year old arrowed his 1st buck and 1st deer with a bow last week :) He put in a lot of time and hard work getting really good with the bow this summer. We have been hitting it pretty hard since Oct. 1 and everything came together on our last bow hunt before Mamma and one of his younger brothers got to start gun hunting on the 15th.

This 7 point came out around 10 AM, eating out of range at about 50+ yards. A spike soon followed, also eating out of reach. The spike started towards us but stayed just out of our range at about 30 yards. Then this guy came in right at our 20 yard zone. He quartered slightly towards us in his last couple steps but my son put the arrow about 1/2" into his heart. He ran maybe 50 yards :)

Thank you :) With the Mentored Youth program, they only get a single, any sex, deer tag per year (which will likely change for next year). So he is tagged out... This is his 3rd year being able to hunt though, and he took a doe in each of his previous 2 years :) So he kind of did an, earn a buck program ;)
