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...

    • It's not optimum for home defense or hunting either. Basically just lower cost plinking.    As far as Bushmaster, they make ok guns for sure. But personally the fact that they are owned by a venture capital firm who tried but failed to sell them off some time ago, they are more than likely controlled by bean counters rather than gun enthusiasts and that generally doesn't bode well for quality. 
    •   social media king...... and dont you forget it ! ! !  lol
    •   I see you have a whooooping 65 posts. start sharing and maybe the site will be smokin again... LOL  have fun and stop beating the horse that died.  pretend ya just found the site  
    • Use the hallow points or ballistic tips they rip apart
    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
