Please post a picture of your youth hunter and his prize harvest here, BUCK OR DOE. We want to keep all these great pics together so we can save them for years to come.
Feel free to add information about it too...time , date, weapon, county, who , where , whens etc...however if you want to tell the full story and share many pictures of the hunt we HIGHLY encourage you to do a stand alone post on it in the forum you feel fits it best.
I hope the HPA youth have a great year and this thread is 100 pages long come January. ENJOY YOUR SEASON AND TIME TOGETHER.

LET'S GO GETTUM!!!
"Only takes a second to change your season" Dad, 1980
My 7 year old scored a 7 point on opening day. He toughed it out in super windy and cold weather for 3 hours before this guy walked into the food plot and gave him a 20 yard slightly quartering away shot. 1st year hunter, 1st sit. 1 proud dad here.
My 10 year old nephew got his first deer ever, his first time hunting deer on opening Saturday! My FIL was trying to coach his shot but he shot while the doe was quartering away and hit some guts and 1 lung. It died quickly, thankfully.
You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?
About 6:30 we had 2 doe come in and as they were getting into range they got spooked and headed back up into the woods. Just before 7:00 this buck appeared in about the same place as the doe. In about 15 seconds he got within range and in the opening. She let the arrow fly and hit it perfectly. He went about 50 yards and then we saw the white belly appear.
Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!
