Well yesterday my son, Trae, had his first eligible youth hunt.
What a day to remember! It was cold in the morning with nothing to protect us from the wind cause we were out on the edge of the marsh. we saw a few in the am but they were  too far for a shot. Started seeing deer @ 5 but still way out of range.  Finally a doe and her 2 youngins came out of the frag @ 400 yards out and eventually made their way right to us. He showed great patience cause the 2 young ones passed literally right under the stand but he wanted to wait on the mom. Long story short, he got a shot at mom but missed and the 2 young ones hung around a little too long and he got both of them. The first one was a button buck and the second was a doe, both about 60 lbs.
There are a few things in life that we will truly remember for a lifetime, my hunt with him yesterday is one of those things for me !

A 2 banger on his first hunt is hard to beat. I think you have a hunter on your hands. Good job.
Crabbing, Fishing and Hunting = Me happy!

Ah Laddy becareful, I knew a guy who went home from work and ate 2 pounds of deer meat with 3 pounds of rice - didn't pass a trud for over a week and did not know why............. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

All truth to that!!!

Ate almost a whole backstrap myself......had to go so bad but couldnt........took thirty minutes of pushing, crying and some loud grunts......but I got it out.............look like a football....professional size, not a mini either.

That hurt!

Congrats, way to go! I was out with my bow yesterday, and it is safe to say the rut is on. In the morn, at my parents I rattled a spike in.  The evening on a property I have leased, I saw a monster buck trailing two does.  I tried to rattle him in bow range but he was too worried about getting tail.  I did have a small 4 pt come by before dark.  I am ready for DE shotgun!

It is probably my favorite hunt of the year ! This year was my 11th consecutive year for the youth hunt. I started with my 2 nephews, then my daughter, a friend of the family last year and now my son. To see these kids, so full of anticipation and excitement, its just a really fun day. Especially when they get one!
It can be a little frustrating when you're not seeing anything or trying to get them to sit still and be quiet, but when that moment happens it's just awesome.
If you've never done it, I urge you to ask around and find a kid to take sometime. You won't regret it !
Good luck to all !

When its on, that 7 pointer and those 2 little bucks will be standing on the side and watching a monster 12 point get her done!
