I am 14 years old and this was the first ever Deer hunt for me. My dad, my older sister and myself were drawn for mule deer in unit 6B in Arizona. My dad and uncle took me out for the afternoon hunt and we spotted this buck at a distance of 100 yards. I took aim, the buck started to move and dad whistled and the buck stopped and turned, I took the shot and wasn't sure I had a successful hit because the buck ran. It only ran about 30 yards before it dropped!

It was a successful first deer hunt using the Ruger American and Hornady CustomLite ammo. Thanks! Brenna
