Took my 3 year old out tonight :)

8 posts in this topic

Good evening everyone. I took my 3 (4 on Tuesday) out tonight for a few hours. We setup on a field that I have seen lots of deer on in the past. We used a ground blind so he could move some and my wife would let him go smile Anyway we were sitting for about 1 hours and around 6 pm or so I let him use my fawn bleat and he hit it twice (we have been praticing) and within minutes here comes a doe running right at us. She stopped at 25 yards and was locked on us. He loved it he got to watch this deer for about 15 minutes walk in front and feed. He had brought his play bow and he kept saying I can shot it Dad. Boy what a great night... smile

Man that's awesome, way to go dad. I'm going to do the same thing with my son this year. I let him sit out with me last year once during the rifle season when I shot a big doe, man did he love that.

It was nice to see his eye's light up when that Doe was coming into him making the fawn bleat noise. I think as I get older and have shot and seen lots of deer in my life a smaller deer doesn't excite me as much as it use to (don't be me wrong I still gets my heart pumping), but to see his eye's and his face was priceless. I told his mother, that I hope she doesn't plan on seeing us much when he gets a bit older smile

well done, how did the doe react to having the groud blind there? Or has it been there a while?

Aiden and me just put the ground blind out 2 hours prior to seeing her. We were in a good situtation where the blind was against a thick woods with grass that came right up to the window. She really didn't care about the blind, but did know that something was different.

Saaweeet! I have to leave town for the rest of the week, but when I get back, I'm taking my 3 year old out for the first time. I can't wait...

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
