Maybe it was beginner's luck or perhaps Pappa Bill was watching over them, but brothers Mason and Dylan Vinje both shot their first bucks - both eight pointers - on opening morning within 20 minutes of each other.


Mason, 11, was sitting with his Uncle Joe Vinje in his stand while Dylan, 10, was with his dad, Jon Vinje, in a different stand on the family's hunting property near Willow River.

Both boys dropped their bucks with one shot.
