The Journey is Just Beginning
Every November My dad and I make a journey up to Nebraska for our annual deer hunting trip. Every year the same memories are pulled out and a remembrance of the year before comes rushing out.
The trip always starts in the morning. When the sun isn 't even up and the sound of fog and the earth sleeping come to ear. The cold engine on the car starting up and smoke storming out of the exhaust, and the feeling of a hot coffee in your hands to start the day. My dad looks at me eagerly and asks” you ready”? I respond with “Of course” We hop in the now warm car and begin our drive into the hills. We get to our destination and slowly hop out of the car trying not to make a sound, grab our rifles and begin to walk. Walking

With adrenaline kicking in from spotting a deer I quickly move to a better position to get a better look. The challenging part is getting close enough for a decent shot. Sneakily I move laterally along the hill to attempt the chance of the deer not spotting me and the chance for a shot. Getting closer and closer I can feel my heart pounding like a drum. I am now close enough and the deer hadn 't spotted me. With my whole body shaking I find and tree and rest my rifle on a sturdy branch. I pull up the scope and bring the stock of the gun close to my ear. All the memories from when I was an 8 year old boy to now in the back of my mind. It all comes down to this I tell myself. I line up the cross arrows on the deer and breath in and out trying to calm myself down. I blow out a quick whistle to let the deer hear it so he can give me a full body approach. I pull the trigger and bam! The deer drops and excitement fills my heart. My dad must have been really close because he came running to the sound of the shot and met up with me. He asked me if I hit i.e. told him “yes it 's down at the bottom of the hill” He gives me a fist bump and we head together down the hill. We arrive at the destination on which the deer lied and pull out our knives to cut the deer open and remove all its guts, but that 's a whole other

    We found some blood, so we followed the track as far as we could see blood. My dad and I tracked the deer for about 50 yards, and lost blood around a creek. We were standing by this creek bend contemplating about what to do and out of the corner of my eye, I saw movement. I turned my head real quick and I saw the deer’s head pop up. I hurry and grab my gun so I can finish off this beast.…

    I have an idea where to put a great stand that should fill all my tags. It is on a hill that is surrounded by valleys. The hill is super thick with lots of cover for the deer to hide. Every time we do drives around our land the deer all run to the hill and hide. So last year in muzzleloader we decided to drive off the hill, it turned out to be a great drive.…

    But then I saw the body of the deer start coming into view. I thought it was a doe because I did not see any antlers at first. But then when it past the bush and a couple of trees the antlers came out and buck fever started to set in for me. I immediately panicked and tried to calm myself down and just remembered what my dad always said to me. “Just relax, Close one eye and keep focused on your target.” I pulled up my gun to my cheek and looked down the sites with the deer in view.…

    This is a perfect opportunity to get in the woods and tag an early season whitetail. If you are currently a gun hunter, I would encourage you to try your hand at bow hunting. It is a great opportunity to learn a new skill and it will no doubt make you a better hunter. Every hunter knows that bullets fly farther than arrows. Because of this, hunters using these weapons hunt deer in different ways.…

    My heart rate increased as I eased my gun out of the window. I went over what Dad told me. Breathe slowly and gently squeeze the trigger, BOOM the gun went off. I tried to look through the smoke as it cleared to see where she went and then I saw her on the edge of the green field. I was ecstatic; I had successfully killed my first deer hunting…

    Now that they are at the location they need to get settled in. Jamel Sabb explains in his video about deer senses, that when hunting be careful of the deer’s three senses. First he talks about the deer’s eyesight; deer have very big eyes so they see more and can see movement very easily. So this means when hunting the hunter must stay very still and move very slowly.

    The Adrenaline that a hunter feels being in the top of a tree stand waiting for the perfect deer to hunt is absolutely incredible, however hunters are not always lucky enough to find their prey. My dad and I began going around the ranch a day before we went hunting, we looked around to see where the biggest deer’s were located. We tested and align the rifles, to leave everything prepared to go hunting the following day at dawn. We were very positive that we were going to be lucky enough to hunt a big trophy deer, tough the results we had were never crossed our minds. Our hope for a good hunt was increased because we saw that many family members had already hunted deer in our ranch, we knew that there were lots of wildlife on the ranch.…

    Every time I become impatient with something, I think back to the time I shot my first deer. It was a great November day in 2010. My dad and I got in the car and made our way to his camp in Raceland. We finally made it to the camp after a car ride that seemed to take the whole day—even though it only took about an hour. We got out of the car, unloaded the gear, and made our way to the stand.…
