Brandons first deer

17 posts in this topic

With the new laws, I was able to take my 11 year old son out for his first deer hunt.

11 hrs straight on stand without a break Saturday for B and I. Only deer we saw all day was a doe and her twins at 11:30 and they came running through about 40 yds out. Brandon wasnt quite ready or quite sure how to do whatever he needed to do. So off they went. Him and I ran through some practice motions after that to try and ready him a little quicker next time.

At 5:15 pm with only minutes of light left on Saturday, Brandon had his first deer down. He was on the gun, and ready in a second. He learned what we discussed after the doe that came by earlier, and he wasnt going to mess up this time.

I am not quite sure who was more excited.

Congrats, I have 9 years to wait before my first can give it a go. Hopefully, he will have the same reaction. The pictures tell a thousand words. I don't recall seeing a bigger smile on a kid.

Very Cool BLB!

That is a very nice first Buck. Some have to wait until they are 20, 30, 40 or 50 before antlers become part of the memory.

Thanks for sharing.

    • got time to check it out (finally). All it was was the positive side of the battery has 2 cables that run to it. I found the computer one was closest to battery and the starter one was on the outside. This had to be turned to starter cable first and the computer cable second ????.  Alls well after that. I also had to get a longer bolt in it to make a better connection..
    • I'm in, in zone 13
    • Tough game for the Preds.  Seemed like Rinne really let the team down last night.  The was a "Wild" like performance, shut the other team down and let in a couple softies and let the game slip away.  
    • congrats to your dad Borch!
    • That's from the Trailer Park Boys. A hideous beast.
    • Nice work Borch for you and your dad. Congrats . I have been seeing a lot of strutters of the weekend . Those 20 gauges are awesome sure put a hurting on .
    • Another fantastic week of fishing up in the Northwest Angle!

      Two weeks into the Minnesota season an abundance of saugers are congregating around Little Oak, as well as other small islands near Crow Duck, making for an easy shore lunch spot while staying close to home. Jigging at 18-24 has produced the most fish but it isn’t too early to be pulling spinners.
       
      On the Canadian side, walleyes are more dispersed but very plentiful on main lake points with current anywhere from 15-20 ft. of water, holes remain consistent.  Almost any method is producing fish, gold/yellow/orange jigs with a minnow seems to be the most popular.  The northern pike bite remains strong with many thirty plus fish being seen. 

      We hope to see you soon!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
