On December 30 my son Blake Lastrapes and I are in each a stand set up side by side of each other. We heard a noise that was coming from our left. Blake lets me know he sees a deer then realizes it is a buck. I pick up my optics and realize he is a shooter. I told Blake to keep him in the scope until I tell u to shoot. Oh he did exactly what I told him to do when finially the shot was fired and the eight point buckled up and trotted off and crashed about twenty yards in front of us. He was so excited and kept saying, 'daddy I shot the buck'. I was pumped up and proud of him. I always say, ' you must be present to win' and that afternoon hunt definently proved the saying. The Double A buck will be mounted and put on the wall in his room next to his first buck he shot two years ago. The deer was aged at 5 1/2 years old and weighed 225 lbs, with a 16 3/8 wide rack, and scored 123.

My son Blake and I were set up on the North East corner of our property on December 30,2015. Blake was in a lock on and I was set up next to him in a summit climber. It was an afternoon hunt and the rut was not far off. Throughout the hunt I would sound my Primos doe bleet can. Towards the end of the hunt I looked over to Blake and said to get your gun and be ready, it's about to be prime time. I hit the bleet call two times and we heard a noise like branches getting tore up. The buck made a pee scrape and looked in our direction. I told Blake to get him in the scope and stay on him. The buck then proceded to cross the slew and come within forty five yards from us. Blake said 'Bamp' to stop the deer and then he shot. The deer ran back thru the slew and crashed. He was so fired up as well as I. We high fived in the stands next to each other and celebrated. It was an experience that all father and sons one day need to experience. The 'Double A Buck' will be mounted and hung up on the wall in Blake's room.
