First Deer
« on: November 08, 2012, 10:50:18 pm »

My son bagged his first deer this year. Insisted on doing everything himself, except for the field dressing. I'm one proud papa. He did real good for a fourteen year old on his own hunting for the first time. He's been out with me before, but I have a deer hunting curse. If I'm there, the deer aren't, so he wanted to go solo. :thrbiggrin:

Awesome!  Congrats to your son.

I will miss the season this year due to my move West in a couple weeks.  I think my wife would change the locks if I told her I was heading to the woods for a couple days while she sits surrounded by children and boxes...

I very much doubt she'll be doing much sitting... Unpacking is not my favorite chore... though it beats the heck out of packing.

You'd be lucky if changing the locks was her worst response. :)

Congrats to your son!

I've been out five times and seen nothing.  Nada.  Unless you count the twenty or so turkeys that flew over head at one point.

Then, coming home from work last evening, I spooked three does as I turned into my driveway.  Drat!

i've been taking G/F's eldest son(14 years old) for 2 years now..........and he can't sit still yet........but he's getting better as he gets older.
Although I still don't know whether he's really into hunting yet..........or just being with a bunch of nasty old men, doing what nasty old men do.*LoL*
