Deer of the Day - First Ever Buck, Boone Blaschko

Deer of the Day - First Ever Buck, Boone Blaschko

11-year-old Boone Blaschko was excited to be on his first ever whitetail hunt with his cousins. Just two weeks prior, the Minnesota youth finished his hunter's safety course at the local police station in West St. Paul, MN  and was now taking advantage of a special youth hunt in Wisconsin, hopeful he'd get a shot at a deer.

It was around 8 a.m., only an hour into the hunt, that Boone spotted his first deer - a mature 8-point buck that was standing 60 yards away. The new hunter shouldered his .270 and squeezed the trigger on his first ever shot at a whitetail. The gun bucked and quickly sent lead back towards a deer that was about to have a bad morning.


Boone peered back through his riflescope to where he shot...nothing. He and his cousins raced over to where they last saw the buck and 20 yards away they heard leaves rustling, where the buck was expiring from a near perfect shot from the first-time hunter!



A first buck with his first shot within the first hour of hunting! But we wouldn't expect less for a young man named Boone!




We want your buck as our Deer of the Day! Please send us an image of your buck, a brief description of your hunt and the gear used to whitetail@imoutdoors.com
