Youth hunt


OUT-YouthHunt-ChloePetersen

 

Chloe Petersen, 13, the daughter of Brian and Amy Petersen, of Gowen, went hunting in Lakeview with her Grandpa, Richard Jones, for the youth hunt. They were in a blind, and it didn’t take long before she saw her first buck. She was a little nervous, however, and was worried she wouldn’t make the shot so let him pass.

“After I calmed down, and let myself know that I shouldn’t be worried, another buck came out in front of the blind. I looked into the scope of the gun, aimed, and then shot. The 8-point buck fell straight back without running. At that time, I realized being scared was worthless. My joy was about to blast out of me,” said Chloe.

She added that there was 14 inches between its horns.

Congratulations, Chloe, on a successful youth hunt!

11-year-old gets first buck


Brennan Harkema, 11, of Cedar Springs took his first deer—a four-point buck—on Sunday, Dec. 18, on an evening hunt with his dad.  Brennan was on the ground, set up behind a downed tree, while his dad was in a tree stand watching over a swamp.
Brennan’s buck stood up about 250 yards out and came straight to him. Brennan got a shot at about 20 yards with his crossbow. It was a great night for both Brennan and his dad.
Congratulations, Brennan!
