Bragging Rights…

Austin Eubanks, 12, killed his first deer, a doe, while hunting with his Uncle Bob in the Nickle Community recently. Austin said, “I killed my first deer today, the same day that my great uncle David Eubanks gave me my PawPaw Clifford Eubanks’ 30-06 shotgun. My PawPaw has been gone 12 years now, and I never had the chance to meet him. I am his only grandson and I was born on his birthday. PawPaw was with me that evening. I love and miss him. Thanks Uncle Bob for taking me hunting.”
