Publisher's Summary

The predatory genes we cannot deny are never more exercised than in deer hunting. In each individual, they travel an age-related arc that begins in youthful passion and settles finally into old-age relaxation. The blood lust with all of its attendant furies and dictates can be an awesome thing when it consumes the deer hunter in the velvet of his life.
Crossing the wild water was crazy, I knew, but I had a desperate need to bag the buck.

The Buck

I recieved a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

This is another great short story by Bill Stokes which is nominally about deer hunting, but really about coming of age. As is common with teenagers and young adults, simple mistakes are made in the attempt to catch his first deer, giving the lesson to take your time and think things through. Also, Johnny Mack, much like many of Bill Stokes's short stories, is a brilliant narrator.

Great short story!

Any additional comments?

Another great short story by Bill Stokes! This is a story about deer hunting but more of a coming of age story about Bill as well. He goes on a hunting trip to get his first deer. Like most teenagers, Bill was a bit reckless. Act before you think! lol The fastest way to learn important life lessons. Great narration by Johnny Mack.
