Hero of the day — April 25, 2012


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.”

    How can I get a copy of this sent to me. By email or mailed? I had no idea my father submitted this of my son. My father passed away 10 months ago and I would love to have a copy of this

      Amie, I will have to go look and find the issue where we placed this hero shot. Give me a day or two and I’ll let you know. Thanks.
