Cole’s cool doe
Cole Hartman and his dad George Hartman got to their stand at 7:15 a.m. It was a clear morning and it wasn’t long before they spotted a couple deer. Around 7:50 or so they saw 2 deer coming from the south. Cole was very quiet, he raised his 20 guage Mossburg youth model shotgun, picked out the biggest one, eased off the safety and let one fly, then followed with a back up shot. His first deer harvest ever was now on the ground.
A job well done!
With his dad sitting right next to him it was now time for some merriment, a couple of high five and even a hug. From there they tagged Cole’s doe, got the four-wheeler and hauled her out. A job well done!
Cole Hartman harvested his first deer, a doe, on Dec. 1, 2012 at 7:51 a.m. while hunting with his father, George Hartman. Nine-year-old Cole attends Pymatuming Valley Primary School, where he is in the fourth grade. He dropped his doe whit a Mossburg 20 gauge youth model pump shotgun powered by 2.75-inch Remington Sluggers. Cole’s doe was at 25 yards when he shot it and only went another 5 before dropping. Cole and Dad George were hunting from a 2-man buddy ladder stand up 14 feet. They were wearing the prescribed amount of hunter orange with camo clothes underneath. Cole’s deer field dressed in at about 175.
The Felt’s fellowship
I received this from Jennifer Felt and after reading it decided with very little editing it was pretty well fine the way it was. So here’s Jennifer’s story:
My name is Jennifer Felt. Dale, you have been so kind in the past to share mine and my families hunting stories that I would like to share another one with you.
