Personal Narrative: A Deer Or No Deer

Deer Or No Deer
When I was younger I sat in a deer stand with my dad. I started at the age of nine and I loved it. Every day during deer camp I woke up early to walk out to the field with him. We would get up around 4 or 5 in the morning. I always lite a fire in the fireplace to get rid of the chill in the cool morning air. Then I would get dressed up for the cold weather to come and prepare for the great hunt we were about to receive.
I could not shoot a deer legally I was twelve. Once I could legally harvest a deer, I couldn't wait for the season to start. I was so excited when I finally got the chance to take hunter's safety class online. I passed my written test and went to take the field test that you must attend to receive your certificate. During the field test I had to carry a

I called up both of my brothers to help us along with my dog who came to help as well. The problem was is my dog is not a very intelligent dog. He is a golden retriever at the time he was about two. He has no clue how to track down anything. He turned into more of a nuisance than a help.
Three or so hours into the chase and we were still tracking blood. We had crossed over the railroad tracks into someone elses property. We kept trekking on. After a while more of searching, I met up with the owner of his chunk of land. He told me, “one of my buddies not too far away just saw a nine point limp across his field and he shot it.”
So there went the biggest deer that I had ever see. Not only was it the biggest deer I have ever seen, it was the first deer I had ever shot. I searched for hours, filled with anxiety, only to find the deer was taken by somebody else. I sat at camp the rest of the day in despair. It was a great hunt, and a not so great hunt at the same time. Now I know for next time to shoot the deer twice, not once, maybe even three or four

    My First Deer One brisk 30 degree day in January, when I was nine years old, was a day for which I was extremely excited. My dad got me out of school earlier that day, so we could go deer hunting. I had already shot a turkey the year before, so guns were nothing new to me. We made a quick stop at my house so that we could pick up the .243 youth edition, a really short barreled .243, that my dad had bought just about a month before so that we could go hunting, and I would actually be able to handle the gun. At this point we did not have the hunting land that we do today, so we went to my grandpa’s house and hunted in the clearing of trees behind his house.…

    I’m just ready to shoot my first deer and go back and brag to all of the guys!” I sucked it up and made the walk. We finally made it to the ground blind. After we settled in, I got comfortable and took my shotgun out and loaded it. I think we were sitting there for a good hour and I started to really have to go to the bathroom.

    I saw the deer in the cross hairs of my scope; I took one last deep breath of the crisp winter air as my dad pressured me to hurry up, and I squeezed the trigger. I had never heard anything sound so loud in my life. My heart was beating through my chest as I looked down to see blood and shattered glass everywhere. The doe I was aiming for still standing in front of me unharmed. I was shaking uncontrollably, and not from the cold, but from the sight of what I had done.…
