The two were hunting in a stand the family calls the “Wheelie Hut” on their land northeast of Alexandria when the doe worked her way in front of it. The deer proceeded to feed there and provide an exciting show for Hunter.

“It took about 20 minutes to get the deer in the background of the picture to the right place and Hunter to look at the camera,” Dean said. “The doe was about 15 to 20 yards away and keeping a 5-year-old boy quiet and still for 20 minutes with a deer that close was quite the accomplishment…It was a pretty exciting time for Hunter to watch that deer that close.”
