Today’s hero is Matthew Humplik, 8, from Spring. His grandfather, Mark Gregory, took him hunting in Houston County for the youth weekend in October.
“He killed his first buck, a 9-point with a 17-inch spread with a .223 at 80 yards with one shot,” Gregory said. “The buck ran about 20 yards and fell. There were a lot of high fives and hugs afterwards congratulating him on his first buck.”
