I know this is going to sound totally Crazy but I am so proud of Shad. You see my dad and his friends have this great deer lease and he has taken Shad once or twice but not very often. Honestly Shad hasn't gone hunting much in his entire life. He likes to it is just that the opportunity has not presented itself often. On the day after Thanksgiving the boys, Shad, David, and Dad, headed out to the lease. Dad has gone many times and has been seeing literally 100's of deer of the wheat field. Dad was so excited about taking the guys.
On Friday Shad had a shot at a GREAT Deer...ya know the one that got away...well he missed...and boy did my dad and David really give him a hard time. Kinda made me "puff up a bit" (Lay off....he hasn't had as much practice as you guys) But Shad took it all in stride and reminded me that he had thick skin and he didn't mind a bit of teasing.
Saturday....HE DIDN'T miss. He got a HUGE 1st buck...I mean...my daddy has brought home quite a few dead animals over the years: deer, ducks, pheasants, dove, etc...So I am never very excited but WOW was I so excited for Shad...to hear the pride in his and my dad's voice. It was great...so here you go...NASTY dead deer pics...but I share them with PRIDE.
