The excitement of your first deer is a memory not soon forgotten for many young hunters. It's the story you'll tell over and over again, the one you'll one day share with your own kids.
For this young man, the anticipation leading up to his first shot and the adrenaline to follow took him on a roller coaster of emotions. What a great reminder of what the sport is all about - passion!
And, although the shot ended up missing its target, this is an extraordinary father-son moment that both will remember for years to come.
Since the video, Lathan has continued to hunt for the perfect shot going on hunts with both his father and his older sister, Reagan.
