Whether you’ve hunted deer for decades or this is your first season, the first one you put on the ground and then proudly help haul home for dinner is unforgettable.

Seven-year-old Cash Koch never will forget his first deer. Or, his first two deer.

The Missouri youngster was hunting with his father, Eryc, when he took a shot at a doe. Here’s the story from Cash’s mother, Megan, who sent it to DDH:

He shot at a doe and it went through her into a button buck. Cash and his Dad Eryc were shocked. Eryc jumped up and said “Hot damn Cash you got one.” But it wasn’t one deer it was two.

Cash has hunted all season with no luck until yesterday. I tucked him in the night before and he said “Mom, I just want to shoot a deer. Any deer. A doe. A buck. A button buck. A small doe. A big doe. Anything.”

As his Mom I am so glad he got his “anything.”

Congrats, Cash! Welcome to the deer hunting fraternity!
