13-year old Trenton Giem has enjoyed hunting since he was 3 or 4 with his dad, and always found it exciting. During his 2010 hunt he was able to harvest a six point buck during bow season and then a seven point buck in the rifle season. No one thought he would be able to top that year, but Trenton believes this year he may have.
Rugged Cross Outdoors, is a Christian organization that works at getting youth outdoors. They sponsored a contest, where the winner would win a hunt in Wisconsin. Trenton had to send in his report cards and an essay on how he would change the world to enter the contest.
Trenton won and during the second week of October, he and his father and the group leaders headed to a farm in Buffalo County, Wisconsin.
“It was interesting. There were a lot more deer than in Michigan, and it was really hot,” said Trenton.
On the first day of his hunt Trenton harvested a doe. The second day at dusk, Trenton saw a six point buck but didn't want to shoot since it was getting dark. His father told Trenton "Don't move," as a seven point buck came by. The buck was about 3 yards away eating acorns. Trenton and the rest of the group had to sit quietly until the buck moved into a position where Trenton had a shot. He got the buck, another good season for Trenton! From PetoskeyNews.com .
