Default My nephew rocks!

This weekend was youth season, Will was working, so I took my nephew hunting. Saw one doe in the morning. As we were walking out we saw a spike but did not have a shot (he was shaking too much to risk it without a secure rest!!). As we were going home about 11:30 we started seeing deer everywhere. We grabbed a sandwich and headed to my dad's box blind (already had permission, was going to hunt there that afternoon anyway). About 1:00 we saw a doe and a buck way on the other end of the field. Watched them for over an hour, no shot. So he took another doe about 2:30. Got to my dad's, cleaned her, got a snack, headed back out. About 5:30 he got the second doe. Talk about an excited 12-year-old!! Now he can concentrate on his two bucks!

Sorry about the pics, camera phone, and the pics were last minute thoughts.

Starr, While your nephew may rock, I think you do! Congrats to him and you!

This weekend started our blackpowder season. My cousin brought along a freind's 13yr old son who got his first deer. I don't know who looked prouder...
