This week’s Pic of the Week is Parker Bates with a nice, plump doe taken on youth weekend in 2017, just before Parker’s 9th birthday. Parker had put his time in scouting with his dad; they picked a spot together to hang a double ladder stand. As they sat together in the stand Parker began to wonder, after 12 hours, if it was going to happen. Suddenly, a doe ran out across the field and made the mistake of stopping just before entering the woods. Parker squeezed the trigger from his single shot and dropped the deer in her tracks! His dad ranged the shot at 130 yards and was extremely proud. Congratulations Parker! For sharing your photo we’ll be sending your family a $20 gift card courtesy of the Saint Albans Co-Op Store.
