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.
