Youth Deer Hunting Success in Maine

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

This is my grandson Gaige Plunginger, age 12 with his first nice 8-point buck which he got with his 44 Ruger, in the Maine 2009 season. He downed the deer with one shot, on a day with the rain coming down hard.

We sat in the stand for over 3 hours in the rain, for this buck to come out. He turn to me after he saw the deer go down, and said: Papa I got him, and he want down, papa I just love to hunt. To hear him say this and to be with him meant more to me than any deer I ever shot. Thank you for letting me share this with others.

Great Story

I always love seeing young hunters with thier trophy's. Has off to any hunters young or old for sitting in the rain for 3 hours waiting for a deer.

Congratulations Gaige and keep on hunting. If your ever in Kansas look me up.
