Zeb the Freezer Filler

Two Saturdays ago, Zeb smiled big when he shot his very first deer.  For around here, it was a nice size buck- one to be very proud of!  You can see the pictures by clicking HERE!

Then, on the spur of the moment, we decided to take a trip to Kentucky to visit Lee's people.  
They have like a ga-jillion acres of hills-and-fields dedicated to deer.  They work that land like a business- or so it seems.  

So one week to the day after killing his first deer... Zeb downs this baby:

That's two Saturdays in a row killing a buck.  Not bad for an eleven year old!

We were ALL way more excited than he was.  All the man-hunters (not talking wild women here, but actually men who hunt) were asking him to tell the story.  Every good kill has a story behind it, and it's usually pretty interesting... and exaggerated.  

Zeb's story? I remember it word for word:

"It walked into the field.  I shot it.  It took 5 or 6 steps, then it died."  

That's the long version, by the way.  

Lord, help his future wife.  

Just for fun, I'll add a few pics of my favorite husband and the kill we've lugged home over the years.  I think both of these deer were mounted, but I'm not quite sure where they hang.  It's not that my house is that big, but rather that it's not big enough- I'm quite stingy with the wall space.  

You should have seen these bad boys strapped to the roof of my mini-van!
