Yesterday morning not too long after the start of hunting, difficult child saw a deer and shot at it. The party could not track it but did find a small amount of deer hair and blood. We all assumed that it was a minor injury and the deer was gone since the guys could not find it. This morning while husband was looking for a deer he shot, he came across difficult child's deer. The shot was just a little low and behind the mark - difficult child did very well in that shot. husband thinks that the deer hid well after it was shot in the first woods. Then, when the guys started to track it, it went across the road that husband had been watching during the stand. husband had heard the shot and knew a missed deer would cross that road. He never saw it. (To clarify, the "road" I refer to is on our private property - he would never be hunting on a public road.) So, difficult child's first deer is a 5 point buck. We are very proud of him! p.s. I have been lurking. I am spending too much time with the games on Facebook - Algerian Patience Solitare, FarmVille, and FarmTown. I have had some issues with Diva but she is now 19 and I am learning to let go. difficult child is doing very well. We are having him tested for an attention deficit - will get the results of a test in two weeks.
