“The great thing about deer hunting is it only takes one deer to make a season,’’ Darrold said.
As everyone gathered for lunch back at camp, Darrold’s son, Dustin, 33, of Oakdale, showed off a big 8-point, 215-pound field dressed buck he bagged.
“A doe walked into my shooting lane at 7:45,’’ he said. He had an antlerless permit, but didn’t have a clear shot. Even if he had, he wouldn’t have taken it this early in the season, in hopes of getting a buck. But 40 minutes later, he got what he was looking for. A big buck briefly stepped into the open, then disappeared into the thick woods.
“I didn’t have my grunt call, so I whistled and he came back into the lane, then turned sideways,’’ Dustin said, offering a perfect 75-yard shot. “I didn’t have time to get nervous.’’ He fired once, dropping the big whitetail.
“That’s the biggest deer we’ve ever shot!’’ Darrold said, giving his son a hug.
