More Than His First Deer

September 22, 2003 by Jeff Snider

My son Cale, 12 years old, showed me more than he knows when he shot his first deer on September 20th 2003. I promised him a new Mathews SQ2 when he sucssefully passed his Hunters Education class. He dedicated time and became proficient on his new bow quickly. Cale had many opportunities to shoot other Deer that week, but restrained his emotions, until this Buck came within 30 yards. He passed shooting two other 4 point bucks ( 8 points in the east ) because he felt the angle of both was not right for a good shot. As a Father this was a great reward knowing he listened all those years and learned the ethical side of hunting, and used them at the right moments. This Buck was his reward.
