Hey Mike, another good year on the home place property in Kansas for my son Zach.
We skipped last year to focus on grades, and this season Zach and I gave the early muzzleloader hunt another shot. Less than 48 hours in the state and we were packing up to head home with another great buck for Zach!
Hunting from the ground, Zach dropped the deer in its tracks at 160 yards with his Pro Hunter FX. The 3 Triple 7 pellets raised a bit of a welt on his forehand though! The buck dressed out at 203.
Zach is 14 now and I told him it’s time to switch full time to the bow or he’d have more mounts by age 20 than I’d have by 50, though I’m not sure that will slow him down either.
It’s great to fill the freezer with a lot of ground meat and summer sausage. Now if I can just get daughter Cathleen to take time away again from gymnastics to get her second deer. Thanks, Jay Graber
Great old buck Zach, and good shot buddy. And thanks Jay for raising your kids right.
