    My son is on cloud nine after shooting a small 8-pointer this evening. He is 15, and this is his third (and largest) deer. What he was most excited about was that he did this one mostly on his own. He picked the spot, he had to watch one direction while I watched the other, he waited for the deer to come in, then dropped it in its tracks.

    I was impressed with the patience he showed. I was listening to his breathing:rof2:, and it must have seemed like forever before that deer walked behind some brush, allowing him to stick his gun out of the blind, and then even longer as it walked closer and presented a shot.

    We have been surprised, too, at the small number of shots heard. But he is happy to have the only deer hanging so far. Hope things improve for the rest of us!
