He told my father that I would never get another "first buck" and they they would mean something to me later in life.

Fast forward to today and I have now tagged 98 deer (whitetails, mulies and blacktails), many much bigger than that little mulie. I have also taken 25 elk, 17 pronghorn, 3 black bears, bighorn sheep, stone sheep, mountain goat, countless wild hogs and have been to Africa 5 times. I have taken 68 species of big game and do you know what holds the place of honor amongst all those trophies? That little mulie, whose antlers I still have on the wall mean more to me than any other I have taken since. That buck your grandson took will have huge importance down the road. Trust me on that one.
Not to worry Flags. I plan on getting a european mount for him.
