On the Mossy Oak Forum there is a guy from NJ who was filming/tracking this monster buck. He has some real nice pictures of this buck from the trail camera and hunted hard but never got a shot off.
During the season he had to move from Jersey to N. Carolina and a week or two after he moved, he reads about this 12 year old girl who shoots this monster buck he had been after. He reccognized the buck from the pictures!
He was upset, not so much at the little girl, but more that someone else had tagged that deer and he didn't.

Here is the good part; Do you try to forget about it or stew over your lost fortune or do something that could help change our hunting future? Here is what I posted back to him since he reposted pics of the buck reminding us of the story.....


Did you ever present her with a framed picture of that great deer you both hunted? Talk about hunting relationships! I think it would be worth the effort, for you and her and you just never know how much good can come from it.

I know she's 12, but just think if you could call her up and chat with her during the off season to see if she is scouting, or during the season to see if she has seen another great buck like the other one in that picture.
Think what it could do for hunting over all....she could be a senator or congress woman some day and if she hunts, she won't be joining the "rank and file" when it comes to banning hunting!

What we all do NOW changes our futures past! Think about it........what if?

That's an excellent point Capn! Not very many people would look at it the way you just did. I guess that's why there are leaders and followers.

Great point, there is an oppertuntiy there. I would be just as happy for the girl as if I shot it myself. I am sure she is hooked for life now.

What a great opportunity for this young girl. Heck I would be more happy for her shooting it then I would myself.

i agree, the young girl must be very excited and i would hope that everyone would be excited for her. if we as hunters cant stand the thought of someone shooting an animal that we scouted, and congratulate them on the accomplishment then we are in this sport for the wrong reason. i know there are circumstances where an animal gets taken illegaly and we all have the right to fret over that one. just the thoughts of an old man. don

The guy's an idiot. I get more fun out of a kid taking a deer than I do myself. My 7 year old granddaughter goes with me all the time. She's to young to hunt, but not too young to teach
