The Hunt for Shorty

The Hunt for Shorty

As some of you know I manage the farms I hunt with some strict restrictions. One of the incredible deer on this one property was named Shorty. I had never seen Shorty before August 8th 2016 and believed him to be about 7.5 years old. I knew this was a deer I wanted to hunt.
