5-year-old harvests his first deer

My 5-year-old son, Cole Smith, harvested his first deer last Saturday morning, (9/18/22) in Harnett County (near Fuquay-Varina). He used a Wicked Ridge M-370 and shot a spike horn at 25 yards (unassisted from Dad). The deer only ran about 40 yards before expiring, but the 2 hour wait to go find him felt like days for Cole. His goal was to harvest his first deer before his 6th birthday and he did it, with 9 days to spare! He was so excited and proud, as was Dad!
