November 19, 2005 I took a friend of mine's son's Matty who is 12 years old on a Saturday afternoon. I set him up on a spot where a saw alot of buck sign and moved myself 50 yds. from him. At 3:30 pm a doe came at near me and all I could think it was I put him in the wrong spot. About 10 mins. later where the doe had come out this huge buck came out behind the doe and chased it into the reeds. It sounded like a bulldozer in the reeds, I took my grunt call out and hit it a few times for matty, and this buck came out of the reeds, passed right by me 20 yds. and headed right for Matty. It came up to the deer lure I had near Matty ( 20 yds.) One SHOT with 00 buck shot it ran straight into a tree head on and broke off the drop tines it had. Straight through the heart Matty shot, perfect SHOT Placement. Seeing this deer come out definitly scared the s--t out of me! I was so glad to see Matty get this Huge First Deer. Youth hunting is where it is at! The deer weighed 160lbs. with 10 pts. and 2 unusual drop tines, which were broke and we will have repaired. Next time I need to TAKE the darn video camera!!!
Deer was taken in Salem, NJ. I have takin alot of deer in my years but there is nothing like seeing a young Boy or Girl take a deer, find a youth hunter and take them out with you keep the hunter hunting!

Nice buck for any hunter. Prefect for a youth. It seem to me that Salem County has been producing quite a few drop tines. I have spotted two myself, and have seen a few a Lance the taxidermists.

Till our trails cross,
