Opening day first buck

  • outdoors

Dominick Brunswick, 12, bagged his first buck on opening day at 7:15 a.m. with a Savage 243. He was hunting with his dad, Tom. They were out in the blind for 45 minutes when the 8-pointer came in following a doe, so he put his sights on the buck and Dad told him to take a deep breath and then to shoot when he was ready. He bagged his buck from 25 yards. This was Dominick’s first time hunting since he received his Hunters Safety Certificate. (submitted photo)
