A hemophiliac half-Cherokee youth tries to live up to his father's expectations, free himself from an over-protective mother, and forge an identify for himself. He also has to overcome the stigma of accidently killing a female deer instead of a buck during his first hunting trip (giving him his nickname and the movie its title). Redroad's directorial debut doesn't break much new ground, but deals with the themes in a satisfying way. Fine cast helps things along nicely.
