They said they felt sorry for the kid because he had shot his "buck of a lifetime" at age 11. Now, any buck he shoots would likely be smaller (his buck netted 163 2/8). What does he have to hunt for?
But, I'm not sure I buy this whole "buck of a lifetime" deal. Coe might never shoot a buck that's bigger than the one he killed with his grandpa during the youth season last year, but I bet he kills a couple that could be just as meaningful. Some day he'll probably shoot his first deer with a bow, he'll recover a deer he thought he'd never find, and down the road he might even take his own kid hunting and guide him to his first buck.
