    He came out from the woods behind me to the right. I heard him moving a long way off. He was making so much noise I thought it was a person or dog. Hopped the fence about 30 yards away and kept on walking. I had the wind in my face and the sun at my back so he had no idea where I was. He finally stopped for a second 42 yards away, and I hit him in the shoulder. He fell right in place and was dead before he hit the ground. I actually shot left handed for the first time ever. The way I was positioned it was a lot easier than shooting across my body. Not a monster but have to start somewhere.

    Most importantly, I almost forgot to thank Rebel for getting me together with his father to take me out. They are the reason I had a place to hunt down here at school.

    Congrats!

    So let me get this straight...you normally shoot right handed? but shot this one with your left? I would think this would be tough using your non-dominant eye.

    Congrats! I would think that is a great first deer and you should be pretty proud of that! Good memories for sure! Rebel, many thanks to you for setting this young man up!!
