I posted it before but I'll post it again. I think my kid was more excited than I was. He loves bowhunting.

My buck, he's only 7. I just love the smile and him holding the rack. When I got home and told him I had hit a buck, he couldn't get to sleep. My dad and I bought a couple of "buddy" stands just so we can take him out.

The story is a couple of pages back under "Can you say lucky".

well the boy has been hooked for years thanks to the teaching of his late father. he actually got that buck with his dad's new bow which he never got a chance to hunt with. shot it from a stand that his father often sat in too. It wasn't shot off my hunting land though guys, we haven't put our eyes on anything quite that nice yet.

my daughter is hooked as well. she gets up in the morning when the guys start stirring in the cabin. She gets dressed for hunting, goes to her stand by herself & sits by herself.

very proud of both of these kids.

The boy pictured above with the trophy buck rifle hunts with us at our deer camp & is great company, he got himself a ... dare I say? Fawn last sat eve, but he didn't care to pose for pictures with that one smile.gif

the kids all did great out at my camp last weekend. my daughter & a friends boy both got there first deer. wish i had pictures of my buddy's boy with his doe/fawn combo. pretty happy little dude there too.

Great deer Northerndave, They all look like they are having a great time. It is good to see that you are picking up were his father left off. Kids need good role models and I think that his father would be proud of both of you.

very nice of you to say. we were best friends, the boy's father & me.

it's easy to know what to do or at least what to try & do when you were as close as we were. He would do the same for me if it were me who had lost his life. He would have done a fine job with my kids if the shoe were on the other foot, I know he would have. I can only hope I can do things as well as he would have.

I miss him terribly, we all do.

but we are living the best we can & doing the things he would have us doing. (the things we love.)

Sounds to me like you had a hunt of a lifetime with the kids and with great success.

Thats what it is all about. We sometimes forget about why we go and key to much on just the kill and maybe need to key on the other side a little more.

My middle son (age 7) and I took our first deer together. We took this doe on the second weekend of rifle hunting. He has been so patient, he started bow hunting with me this Fall and continued rifle hunting with me both weekends! It is just so much fun to have your kids with--I am to the point that I almost pass up shooting deer if one of my boys are not with me. He was so proud and could not wait to share the story with anyone that would listen! It is so fun to pass on the sport to the next generation. Sorry the picture is not the best, we had some in the field, but the camera had dead batteries, so the pictures didn't turn out the best! 2007-2008001.jpg

Jr was by my side again this year. Next year he gets to hunt.

We've passed on quite a few deer this season, on three occasions we let a 6 pointer walk. Last night we decided that we'll take a doe in the morning if the opportunity presented itself and end our great deer season.

It was a cold morning and a stiff NE wind blew though us but we were down wind where the deer would be coming from. Jr was getting cold and huddled down in the buddy stand. Popping his head up from time to time to scan his designated area for deer. I was getting cold too. I started second guessing if we shouldn't have passed on so many deer during the season and leaving the last weekend to take a deer.

"Stay still and listen" I reminded Jr, at the same time trying to keep his hopes up.

I see that movement 100 yards out, its coming in our direction, that same direction as the deer we passed earlier in the hunt, and up wind. I whisper to Jr "deer" and we both position ourselves for the shot. Its a doe and we watch as she comes in and out of sight, waiting for her to get in a place for the shot. I notice a deer following 100 ft behind her. We've seen this before and had those hopes that a buck was in tow, up till now there hasn't been. The doe is now 200 ft away and in the open, I wait to see whats following her. She turns her head to look behind her at the same time taking the broadside shot and making it quartering toward us, I decide thats far enough. Before the shot opportunity is lost the whole season from start to this point is processed in an instant, the Ruger barks. Two flags go waving. Hmmm, what no full out dead run?

No doubts about that rifle, I know I was dead on when I calmly squeezed off the shot. We high five, gather our stuff and look for the hit. I see disturbed leaves and tore up ground where the doe wheeled around from 30 ft away, "POI" I tell Jr and we head there. I see hair then blood. I put Jr in front and let him follow the trail. I saw the flags part ways after the shot just before they they disappeared through the woods. I knew the doe would be close to that point of departure. It was a fairly easy blood trail as Jr led us to the doe.

Congrats Frank! I pictured myself with my dad in the same situation.....getting cold, checking my area every now and again and the high-five when he connected. Thanks for bringing back the memories and good job getting Jr. involved.

We can argue about rules, regulations, seasons, bag limits, scopes on muzzleloaders, and deer populations but THIS is what it's all about. Take your kid hunting and let them shoot their own deer. Life truly is good ...
