Personal Narrative Essay: The Day I Shoot A Deer

Decent Essays
Beep Beep Beep Beep my alarm was going off and I knew it was time to hit the woods. I went downstairs and dad had been already awake. My mom had coffee and hot chocolate in thermoses. I ate pancakes my dad had made before I was up, I looked at the clock I saw that is was 4 in the morning. I was surprised because I usually would have been tired, but I knew today was the day I get a deer. I go to the gun closet and grab my youth 20 gauge Mossberg, I throw on my blaze orange jacket and hat. I grab my lunch and head to the truck. I get to my uncles woods, climb out of the truck to load up the gun and start walking. The walk to my stand is about a 20 minute walk. I start on the trail with my cat eyes on my hat and gun in both hands. I can't shoot …show more content…
Your mind blanks you have so much excitement you don't know what to do. Of course this isn't my first time hunting and watching my dad shoot a deer I know what to do but i'm so amazed I actually shot a deer I just can't think, but dad knows what to do he tags the deer and says you got a nub buck. A nub buck isn't the oldest or biggest deer, but it's not a faun the deer is about a year old. after we tag it my dad gets to work gutting the deer and dragging it up to the shed. We hang it and get ready to cut it up. My dad cuts the legs off, then the head, and starts to skin it. All the parts we don't need go into a bag and the meat we cut off goes into a different bag the back straps are wrapped separately. Then the deer is done and we throw it in the back of the truck and drive away to put the meat in the freezer. After you shoot a deer the adrenalin starts pumping and you're shaking so hard you have to stand. On that day I can still remember how happy my grandpa was that I got a deer, he may not be here today to see the deer I shot but I will always remember how proud he was. That day I learned something, that being patient always pays off even know that it's hard but still is worth

    I started waving my hands and pointing toward the deer, but my dad didn’t understand what I was doing.

    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.…

    It merely lifted its head and looked around. My dad reloaded the rifle and told me that this would be my last opportunity to kill the buck. I aimed at the deer slowly this time, making sure that the crosshairs were lined up directly on its heart. I took a deep breath, relaxed, and calmly pulled the trigger. The deer dropped as soon as the shot landed.…

    My father always carries a back pack with him even if he isn’t the one hunting. In that bag he keeps a first aid kit and extra hats and gloves. My father then informed me that we had about 300 yards to walk before we would be at our ground blind. I remember thinking to myself, “really, I did not sign up for walking.
