Henry asks Gemini about Clay:

Henry: How'd he start you? Hunting birds? Rabbit? About 12 years old, moved you up to deer?

What's the meaning of "moved you up to deer"?

    "Moved you up" implies a progression. It suggests that hunting birds and rabbits was easier or simpler than hunting deer, which are larger animals and also more difficult to locate and track.

    Gemini started with birds and rabbits, and then, when he was about 12, was moved up (made to progress) by Clay to more difficult game.
