– Clifton Usher, age 12, El Dorado Springs, had never hunted anything, so when Rod Bledsoe offered to take him hunting, everything was new. First, Rod taught him to shoot with his low recoil .22-250 rifle and scope. After they had hunted for a while on Saturday, Nov. 2, this small doe ran out at about 75 yards. After Clifton dropped it with one shot, they dragged it part of the way home. Then when a neighbor stopped by to haul the deer to the house and take a photo, Clifton got to learn about how to clean his deer.
