I really like writing deer hunting stories. It is even better if the story features a youngster’s first deer.
And a real plus is when that youngster is a member of my own family.
Last fall my great-niece, Mariah Wagganer, was 17 and a senior at Central R-III High School in Park Hills, Missouri.
She had been deer hunting a couple of times with her dad, Jackie. They hunt in Madison County on Uncle Larry’s property with cousins Josh and Colton.
Mariah had never had a shot at a deer, much less having killed one.
