My 9 y.o. son, Tanner, killed his largest buck to date Nov. 6 in Farmville. We arrived in ground blind at 4:00, knowing the rut should be near I used a bleat can call every 25-30 min. along with grunts. Deer activity was slow and my son getting impatient. Then out of nowhere the buck steps into the lane steadily walking out of site. As I gave Tanner his 7 mm-08 I had to stop this buck for a shot. One grunt stopped the buck but not long enough for a shot. As the buck reached the other side of lane just before getting away Tanner lays the 140 gr pellet to the right shoulder, dropping his buck. What an awesome hunt.
