Possum's First Deer

We have a very short rifle season (only 2 weeks). Joel and Possum hunted hard those 2 weeks trying to get Possum a shot. Needless to say the season ended without a kill. The first weekend of the new year is a free youth hunting weekend. Only kids can rifle hunt. Possum got a new rifle for Christmas from Joel and I and he got to try it out that weekend. That Saturday afternoon he finally got a shot and harvested a deer. He was as excited as if it had been a huge buck!
