I'm working on my 5 year old and the 7 month old has some growing to do before i get him out.

This year was really about being a curiosity builder for my oldest. Until this year he wasn't into it at all...he kinda took his mother's view on hunting. The wifey is okay with it as long as i'm not spending alot of time away from the family (huh?) and as long as i don't take up all the freezer space with deer meat. Oh, and no squirrels in the freezer. is way past time for her to watch me man up about some of these things. I have 3 tags to fill and intend on filling all of them. AND butchering my own deer. Squaks? If i can find some this year i'll put them in the freezer. my big trophy this year will be a turkey if i can get it.

My son is a really good shot. He's too small to hold the gun right now, but we're gonna work on that next year. I think it's time for him to have his own single shot bolt 22. The way I see it, if kids are raised around guns and taught to respect them for the tools they are, then the curiosity and bad side of kids and guns never plays out. At least that's my hope. Next year, i'll try to teach him how to sneak up on things...right now it's just too dang cool to kick the leaves when you are walking
