"Can I shoot the buck? Please? I have an open shot right now."
One of the best parts of this video is when the little boy says, "When I raised the gun out the window, I was nervous!"
In that moment, it's hard not to feel your heart swelling with pride for this courageous and determined kid.
"I'm still shaking," he says after that, and he's also smiling!
Some of the videos shared in the Wide Open Spaces online hunting community focus on the thrilling and visceral aspects of a great hunt, but this video stands out. It really shows that patience, trust, and practice can pay off, not just for a hunt, but for a lifetime. Tremendous kudos to TexasNative00 for being such a great dad.
Also, be sure to watch this video through to the end to see throwback of this young man when he was only four years old!
