Benjamin Thompson, 10, set out with his dad, Steve Thompson, during the youth hunting season in hopes to use his great-grandfather's 1951 Savage 222 rifle. When a good-sized doe came out, he took his shot and dropped it.

Benjamin will cherish this memory for a lifetime and his entire family is extremely proud of him for carrying on the family tradition," a release said.
