It was just the kind of deer the man mentioned in his stories.Peter Britton, Tyler's granddad, died last January. The man didn't hunt, but he encouraged his grandson to do it. He spoke constantly of the big-racked bucks he'd seen, delighting at the boy's saucer eyes.A month earlier, Tyler received a new rifle for Christmas.Long before the state's weeklong youth hunt arrived this fall, the boy unscrewed the butt plate from the stock and inserted a charm his mother had given him. The bullet contained a pinch of his grandfather's ashes.
