(As told by dad Derrick Slagle)

It had been decades since the Slagle family of New Hope hunted late in the season. But this year, 13-year-old Jordan convinced me and his grandfather Dean to make one last attempt. In woods near Longville during the final Saturday of the gun season, Jordan heard a noise 50 yards to his right. The buck broke into a jog, but Jordan halted it with a grunt. From 100 yards away, he dropped his first-ever deer, an amazing 10-pointer.
