The Big N
MONDAY, NOV. 30, 1964

Boy's mountain monarch 'a beauty'
BY TOM DIES
For Pennsylvania Game News
I woke to the smell of bacon already frying
and hurried to dress and get to the kitchen, where
my father and Uncle Robert were enjoying a
second cup of coffee.
Six to 8 inches of snow had fallen overnight
and, even though Dad had to work and wouldn't
be by my side, I couldn't have been more excited
for my first buck-season opener.
After breakfast, I gave Dad a hug and hopped
in Uncle Robert's car to head to Sill Run, where
we met Uncle Dave and my cousin Rick in the
parking lot.
We headed out the trail toward the flat. Uncle
Dave and Rick dropped down into the woods
first, and Uncle Robert and I did the same after
another 300 yards or so.
Uncle Robert walked to a tree, cleared the
snow and leaves from around its base and
instructed me to keep my eyes peeled for deer.
While I was full of enthusiasm, it wasn't long
before the 20- to 30-degree cold started to
seep through my Woolrich pants and coat, and
Uncle Robert and I took a little walk to warm
up. By noon, we'd seen a number of deer, but
none with antlers, and we headed back to the
car for lunch.
I'd finished my Lebanon bologna sandwich,
cookies and hot chocolate, when Uncle Robert
turned to me.
"Well, let's go get 'em," he said.

Feeling pretty comfy sitting in that nice warm
car, I was hesitant to leave. Uncle Robert gave
another rallying cry.
"You came here to hunt and we're going to
hunt,'' he said.
I grudgingly put my hunting mittens and hat
back on, and followed him back out the path.
This time we went farther before heading
into the hardwoods, walking to a big stump just
outside a mountain laurel thicket. And in 15 minutes, the biggest deer I'd ever seen stepped out.
He stopped at about 30 yards and looked me
right in the eye. I knew enough not to budge as
I admired his big, beautiful antlers. After what
seemed an eternity, he turned broadside.
I slowly raised the Winchester .32 Special,
placed the iron sights just behind his shoulder
and squeezed the trigger.
The afternoon stillness was interrupted by the
booming shot and the deer's churning hooves
throwing snow and dirt. I racked another shell
into the chamber, but the buck was out of sight.
Uncle Robert and I hustled to where the buck
had been standing, found hair and blood and
quickly picked up the trail in the snow. After
another 75 yards or so, there was my buck!
"What a beauty!" Uncle Robert exclaimed.
When we finally got the deer back home, Dad
called the newspaper and they came out to get a
photo of a 12-year-old hunter looking up at his
8-point of a lifetime.
I'm awfully glad that Uncle Robert persuaded
me to get out of that nice warm car.
