Well, I took my 12 year old granddaughter out this am for the opening of the deer youth season.

From the pictures on my trail camera, I figured we were in good shape.

We got in the stand at 6:15 and at 7:14, here comes the 8 pointer I have been seeing on the camera. We got ready and we let the buck get within about 17 yards and then I told her to let it have it. She shot, the buck walked off slowly and wobbly for about 30ft and crashed. We went over there after about 5 minutes, busy high fiving each other and found the buck.

All the practice she has done the past 2 summers has really paid off as she shot the deer, took out the heart and one lung bigtime with her 20 gauge slug gun. Last years buck dropped on the spot. Gotta love it when a youngster can shoot like that. WE practiced at much longer ranges but I thought if the buck wants to walk right up to use, then keep coming as it makes for a much easier and higher percentage shot.

As with last years 8 pointer, she said I am shaking again and I said that is what this is all about, the excitement.

The hunt was quick as we did not have much time to spend together in the deer stand but an awful good ending.

I will post a pic later, have to finish skinning it and then quarter it up and get5 it in the cooler as it looks like a warm day today.

Nothing better than taking a youngster out deer hunting and spending time with them and then as a bonus, harvesting a buck. Just does not get any better than this, ever.

Taylor asked me what I was going to do since we do not have to go out this evening, I said you know, the fellow I guided for the handicapped hunt shot a buck, now you get one and Gpa also wants to harvest one. Taylor said good luck.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
