FIRST BUCK – Faith Schutte, 11, of Roscommon, took this buck during the youth firearm season Sept.  21-22. Her father, Jonah, said, “This was Faith’s second year hunting. She passed up a ton of bucks last year but never found one she wanted to shoot. So, she was super excited when she saw this one step out. She said it felt like she was ‘gonna die’ because her heart was pounding so hard. She shot him at 50 yds with a .243 Remington and he dropped dead in his tracks. One of my favorite mottos is ‘Get a child in the wild.’ Jonah said it was a great experience for both of them.
