    Why do people shoot small bucks year after year? Is it meaningful or do they do it to show it off? Sometimes I ask myself the same questions. I was brought up to shoot a small one then keep going bigger every year, or to let them go to grow another year. I always wonder if people think about how many big bucks there would be if more small/little bucks were passed up each year. The potential for monster bucks is there, but not only one person in the community can be letting young bucks go knowing

    Life changing events are different for everyone. The first time I killed a deer it lit a passion in me for the outdoors and helped me to carry on the tradition of my family. I had gone scouting with my dad prior to this and I had even gone hunting a few times, but I had never killed a deer. I had shot a gun. I knew the loud crack in my ear, the gentle kick back against my shoulder, and I knew how to aim. I was pretty good at lining my target up in the crosshairs. However, the opportunity had
