"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

That's actually him cutting up his deer.  Not a lot of story there, so I'm not doing a separate thread. Hunted bucks for a week and a half with no luck.  On the last day of the season we decided to go after a whitetail doe for him to fill his tag.  He made it happen in the last 20 minutes of light on the last day (no pressure, right.. ;) ).  One clean shot at 120 yards, dropped right where she was standing. 
I was afraid that he might be disappointed shooting a doe after last year's double droptine muley, but he wasn't.  He was happy as a clam to not have to eat tag-soup.  :tup:

That's where it's at man. Every kill matters, especially at that age. He'll remember it forever.
