Awesome! Pretty impressive shooting for a young man. Maybe he could teach me a thing or two! Congratulations!

Great Pics. I love to see young hunters having a great time. Also looks like a very nice size grouse.

Is that a youth 870 he is using? I have a youth 870 my dad bought me about 15 years ago that I still use once in awhile. Out off all the guns in my collection that one brings back the most memories.

Thanks for sharing smile.gif

Very nice, a memory that will stick with you both forever.

Best guess is that picture will be in a frame and on his dresser for a long time.

870 youth JUNIOR model the smallest 20 ga. remington makes.

He likes that gun. Carries it himself the whole way. Loads and unloads it himself. Always checks that the safety is on. Im glad we chose this over the mossberg.

Look at that proud look. Dont you have to be 12 and have completed a gunsafety course or is that if you are big game hunting only?

Ok I assumed that you had to be 12 and complete a gun course for all hunting. I did not know it was big game only. I bet that little gun would be awesome for even an adult to carry into the grouse woods. I have a little sxs spanish made hammered 20 that is short and is a great shooter and light to carry. It was an old gun that just sat in my father in law's closet for years. it needed a firing pin and the chokes were too tight. New pins and opened the barrels up and many a grouse has fallen cool.gif

      For details fished 18 to 21 feet of water away from the city on ice. The bait that the fish preferred was again the smallest pug bug with black maki mino or white. Red, watermelon, shiner, and pink did not work. The snitch was able to detect the lightest bites as my dad was use a blue ice noodle and was not having any luck. Once I got my dad to switch to one my meat rigs it was game on. He was using a older st. croix legend with white custom jigs spins 3mm tungsten jig. He was adding a waxworm and caught a few fish but I was still out fishing him 10 to 1 or more. I did get 8 gills over 9 inches which was great to see for this lake.
