DRIFTWOOD OUTDOORS: Hunting heritage
Vogt passes on passion to his son
Sunday, August 19, 2012
In you live in Central Missouri and have a serious passion for hunting whitetail deer, then there’s a good chance you know Dan Vogt.
If you don’t know Dan, he’s the regional director for Whitetails Unlimited, and he pretty much eats, drinks and sleeps whitetails 365 days a year. So when Dan told me he had experienced the hunt of his life last season, I knew I had to hear about it.
The story wasn’t what I expected. He didn’t tell me about a double drop tine booner closing inside 20 yards. It wasn’t a story about a state record, or some big nasty freak. In fact, it wasn’t about antlers at all. The story of Dan’s best hunt ever was of his 8-year-old son, Jacob, killing his first deer.
