Typical Gun 130

by Hunter Branco
(New Jersey)

My dad went up to Kansas that week wasn't expecting to go up to NY for opening day of rifle this year but he got a monster 10 point whitetail buck opening morning and was a 160 class buck. We hurried up to NY the night before opening morning. We picked stands and went to bed. My stand I was gonna sit produces a buck each year so far. I got in the stand and waited. My globe fell off in the cold morning so I set my other glove aside. I kept hearing stuff behind me. I couldn't see anything though. Then I heard a crashing sound. I looked behind me and there was a deer. I stood up and waited to see horns. I put the scope up. His head went up and I saw the curve of his rack. At that moment I turned to get situated. My book bag fell and landed right next to my feet. He looked up but didn't see me. I put the gun up and had the scope up and the cross hairs behind a tree at 40 yards. I waited for him to come closer. He took steps stopped and I was on his neck. One more step I said. Then he took half a step and I shot. He ran up 40 yards and plowed into the ground. I was so happy I was screaming forgetting there was another hunter in the field over. I'll never forget this moment and this buck for as long as I live.
