In some families, hunting is a tradition that's passed down from one generation to the next. But on a recent outing to teach two kids how to kill for sport, the lesson ended up being one about friendship.
Hunter Jung, a kindergartner from Wisconsin, and his cousin Briell were on their first deer hunting trip, learning about the sport from their parents, when things took an unexpectedly sweet turn. After spotting a small deer in the brush, Hunter was getting ready to fire his pellet gun at the animal, like he'd been taught, when his father stopped him.
And it's a good thing that he did. Turns out, the young buck was still too small to shoot - though Hunter and Briell soon discovered there was more to be gained by showing him kindness.
