Wayne Jackson decided he wouldn’t go deer hunting this year, but his son finally convinced him he should go along and keep the fires going in camp while the others hunted. So he did. They arrived in camp a little late, it being necessary for Junior to do some work Monday morning. Everyone took to the woods, leaving Wayne to keep the camp warm. He went to the door to rid himself of some tobacco juice and what do you think he saw? A nice 8-point buck. He quickly brought it down. On his 73rd birthday, too.
