With rifle season behind us and muzzleloader season coming to a close, how many of us are in the same position as the young hunter in today’s video?

Probably more of us than we’d care to admit.

The video was recorded by Tim H. of Alberta, Canada, who was out hunting with his young son when they either missed a shot at a buck or never found an opportunity to take a shot.

The youngster can’t handle the missed opportunity.

“The big deer just ran away,” he says through tears and a runny nose. We’ve all been there, kid. Big deer run away. It’s just what they do.

Like any good dad, Tim says “We’ll get him next time,” and the youngster reluctantly agrees.

But if this kid is anything like me, he’ll be thinking about that big deer for a long time.
