Well he was drawn for Hiawassee Ref. and we went and scouted a couple weeks ago, I found a nice spot to set up our blind.

The hunt was this past weekend and at 7:41 Saturday morning he took his first shoot, and average size doe broadsided about 25 yards away. I searched for 2 hours for a blood trail but found none, but the excitement was unreal. I was a nervous or more so then he was. He was really fired up, hopefully now I have a hunting partner for life.


At around 12:15 a second dear came by but he was unable to get set up on it before it walked behind a large log. We saw another deer that evening and none on Sunday morning. All and all a real fun trip. I was really hoping his first hunt would end in a harvest, but believe it was very successful regardless
