Re: What we are aiming for...

Well it was 1998 and I was 13 years old. It was my second year hunting at deer camp in warren county, though I started going with my dad when I was 10. My great grandfather was in his mid Nineties and didn't hunt for a few years and it bothered him. he built our camp in 1959 out of whatever he could get his hands on and the camp is still pretty much original today before camp him, my pap, my uncle, a d a few friend had a 1939 ford school bus with bunk beds and a pot belly stove in it. It made the pittsburgh press called the hunting camp on wheels. Back to re story He finally came up deer season to see his oldest gret grand son hunt. Imagine that i got my first deer when he came up to camp. It was a big ole mature buck though it was only a four point half rack but that was big for up there. We took a picture on the camp porch of me, my dad, my pap, and great grandfather. Four generations up that camp and tht picture is on my wall and it made it on the picture board at my wedding this past Saturday.

Re: What we are aiming for...

I'm in Texas and the majority of my hunting experiences are here. I am going to British Columbia - Black Bear and Wolf - spring 2016, with my father at my daughter. I have hunted all over our state for various exotics and native game but I'm not a big Upland Game hunter. I have hunted high and low fence and I will just leave it at that. What I love most is being outdooors and sharing it with others. Yesterday I was able to take a guy and his grandson for a blackbuck doe meat hunt. The grandson was 8 and had never skinned a deer. So after our hunt success I was able to teach him. But with my kids I don't remember the sparkle like you see in kids that have never done it. My kids grew up with it since they were old enough to walk and go with me to the box blind. Going hunting itself was never really a new thing until they had to take something themselves. For me and my family there wasn't a time we didn't hunt or have some part in it. We grow up with it year around here and I think we do more than most people do in other states since. But when its an instance like yesterday I really enjoy seeing the smile and that feeling when you can tell you have them hooked.

I do remember my daughters first turkey hunt with me. She called in a turkey in the early morning from off the roost and straight in to us. It seems like it happened in just a few seconds and I was really proud of her.

With my son I remember his first kill. His very first kill was a with a .223 single shot rifle and used to take down a small boar about 80 yards on a open hay pasture with a bipod. He worked it perfectly with me right behind him.

What was great about the place that my kids made their first successful hunt was that the property belonged to my grandfather. My grandparents farm is where I killed my first buck and where I learned to hog hunt. So making the connection on that same place on the same pasture with my kids really makes it special to me.

Re: What we are aiming for...

I can't even remember when I started hunting with my dad because I was that young but I'll never forget the great lessons on safety and ethics he taught me. I am lucky enough to still get to hunt with my dad and I cherish every moment. And when I have kids of my own I will be sure to teach them the same lessons my dad taught me.

Aim small, miss small
