Tales from the Timber: Boy bags deer, ducks

October 26, 2010 at 02:00 PM

By SCOTT PEIFER

Jaxon Peifer, 10, has started off the year with some terrific beginner’s luck. While pursuit of his first archery deer has slowed, he went into the youth deer season and netted great results with a opening morning 7-point Woodford County buck he harvested with a muzzleloader. He was excited as ever to harvest the buck and was surprisingly happy to pick the items he wanted the deer to be processed into. He seems to have acquired a taste for the Hawaiian sticks.

Last weekend he went on his first youth waterfowl hunt with one of his best friends and again had some great success. Jaxon and his friend Jarrin were waterfowl hunting at the Woodford County fish and wildlife area near Lacon. On Saturday, Oct. 23, the two were split up into different blinds. As this was Jaxon’s first attempt at waterfowl hunting, he was welcomed by the owner of a blind with open arms. The gentlemen not only provided a great blind but great dog for retrieving and some good calling.

The weather was miserable and raining, but it didn’t stop Jaxon from wanting to do it. His first day yielded two hen mallards and a drake mallard. The exciting part of it was one of the hen mallards was banded which was the talk of the check station. Now guys hunt for years and years and never get a bird with a band and he gets one his first day. After two days of hunting, he and his buddy harvested fourteen ducks and one goose.

I am proud of his love for the outdoors. But this 2010 season seems to be in his favor this year,
