Re: Youth and Mentored Youth Hunters Success Thread

well,my boys aren't much for typing(texting is a different story lol) so i'll post the pics and tell the story if thats ok with you gal??

well,my stepsons,when i met them 5 years ago,hadn't hardly shot more then a b.b. gun and were addicted to playstation and x-box,i had plans to change all that!
well,now we dont even own an xbox or playstation anymore,these boys are now confident,outgoing,friendly boys who are really liking this thing called hunting!

i put those boys on a 600 clay bird per boy per summer diet,hunter safety courses were only taken when i felt they would pass well,both scored 100% :D!
on my first effort at taking youths,david(the older) got 4 ducks,1 hen pinnie,1 hen mallard,1 drake black and a banded greenhead!
next season was daniels turn he got 5 ducks, all bwt!
last season the boys were with thier dad so i took 2 other youths from this forum out and each got a first,both dux and geese!
this season i had my two again and a friends daughter on her first duck hunt(allready had a goose)!
we got what we got to shoot at that day ending with 3 mallards and 2 woodies heres some pics

My grandson Butch at 9 years old has had a fine year.From his favorite passion hunting behind his setter to the 4 point and his second spring gobbler. Butch lives with me and I'm a proud grandpap. I just pray I have many more years with him.

Re: Youth and Mentored Youth Hunters Success Thread

Here is the start of a simple email adress/screen name I created 10 years ago.

First morning of gun season at camp.

First day.
Parker in stand with me after cutting the hair on a spike that came right in, perfect. Buck fever got to him.
10 years old.

Jake on the second day, after a long diminishing blood trail. A doe being chased by two bucks came in at first light came in on my side of the stand, stopped slightly behind us. He was ready with the gun and took the shot, hit him too far front in the muscle of the shoulder. He ran off way up hill and we followed untill the blood ran out and his tracks met other deer. It was a nice wide 8, I hope he made his way to someone else. It was a " no need to count" buck for sure.

First Saturday at home, Jake got the go ahead from his brother. Stumbled into this buck bedded, he hit it on the run at 50 yards.
Now boys do hunt.
