John Vernagis Jr., 11, from Dupont bagged his first buck while hunting near Fleetwood on opening day, Monday, November 26 at 7a.m..
He was with his uncle and mentor David Yatsko, an avid sportsman who introduced him to the sport.
His sister Alexis and Aunt Sue assisted in transport of the trophy. The deer will be mounted for the entire family to enjoy.
By the way today is John's birthday.
