My son's first buck

11 posts in this topic

Don't post very often, but read along quite a bit. My 12 year old son had a nice first hunt. He shot a small doe at 30 yards around 7:30 on opening morning. Dropped it right there. Just I was getting that cleaned up and tagged we saw the one below (8 point) coming down the other side of the draw. He got back to his gun and dropped him from around 80 yards. 2 very nice shots. My cousin also had a nice 10 pointer, but the only pics I have of that are a bit messy so I won't post those. We went 3 for 5 by 8 or so on opening morning and thought we had enough deer so called it a hunt.

He was a nice buck, I'd guess he went 180 or so. I didn't shoot a shell and think it's probably my favorite hunt ever (shortest as well). I had a blast watching him have a great morning.

Nice buck man, tell him way to go, as I'm sure you did a thousand times. I can't wait until my son can hunt.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
