A Short Scouting Session with the 9 year Old
« on: September 24, 2012, 01:27:19 PM »
It was a stellar weekend for me.  Took my 9 year old out for some scouting and ended up taking a doe with him.  It was his first kill to be on and it worked perfectly.  A friend of mine introduced me to a landowner that wanted a few whitetails thinned out around their property and I happen to have a doe tag for the area so we went to check it out.  There were quite a few deer around so we sat by some Hay bales to see where the deer were entering the field.  Within a few minutes a doe entered the field right by the bales and gave me a 15 yard shot.  She ran about a 100 yards before expiring and was a great first kill with my son!!

Great job,I am sure you are going to be a good hunter.
If you are too busy to hunt , you are too busy.

awesome! My son is 9 as well. He's been out hunting a few times with us. My daughter was there when my husband shot a muley doe a few years ago, I think she was only 5!
