Master of the Hunt Spotlight: Liam

Happy Thursday! Kelly here with another spotlight on a hunter in our community.

Another day, another antelope. These things are pretty common out here. I picked this younger hunter out for today because I loved reading about how hunting is something special he always does with his dad.

Meet Liam, and take a peek at his trophy animal.

Liam says, "This is my second antelope kill. I always hunt with my dad. We spotted this buck. I told my dad 'I'm not gonna shoot it.' My dad said, 'just get out and nail him!' So when I opened the door to the truck it took off and we followed it. It stopped and I got out just nailed him in the head. I shot him with my dad's 6.5 PRC at 480 yards."
