Ex­cite­ment on first week of youth hunt

El Dorado News-Times - - Sports - By Katie Meade

Noth­ing makes me hap­pier than to see Cooper smile and I had to smile dou­ble this week­end.

Cooper was suc­cess­ful on Sat­ur­day morn­ing on his hunt and har­vested a beau­ti­ful six-point buck.

I wasn't able to take him since I had to work but he was happy to go with his pap­paw.

When I re­ceived that call and that pic­ture of him hold­ing his deer I was so happy and ex­cited for my lit­tle hunt­ing buddy.

He had told me so many times over the last cou­ple of weeks that he couldn't wait for No­vem­ber 3rd.

I was so proud of him be­ing able to place a per­fect shot and re­cover the deer quickly. He is ready for the meat and ready to see the rack on his wall.

I also want to con­grat­u­late all of the suc­cess­ful youth har­vests this week­end. We are still tak­ing pic­tures as long as you send them in to us. Ques­tions? Com­ments? Pic­tures? Send them to
