Hero of the day — Sept. 24, 2013

Today’s hero is Jarrett Robertson, 15, who shot this nice mature Axis on his home property at the end of June in Gillespie county. He enjoys hunting exotics and was fortunate to take this one with his .243. He took a broadside shot at 80 yards for a clean kill. He was extremely excited. This is the second time in 4 years he has managed to take a summer Axis.
