Andrew killed a buck that we have been after for the last 3 years tonight! We have had a good history with this deer and even found one of his sheds last year. This season has been a tough one for us. Last year my Grandpa had a stroke and I knew our time was limited on our family property probably and I feared last year might be our last year hunting it. Andrew and Addison killed great bucks there last year and we then killed 3 turks there in the Spring! Unfortunately we lost Grandpa last month and it's just been hard hitting it like we usually do. I surely feel that Grandpa was with us this eve as Drew killed one of the best deer that has ever came off of our family ground. The whole thing is bitter sweet. Grandpa was always the first person we stopped to show when we had success...we stopped there tonight to show Grandma but it was hard knowing he wasn't there...
Here is Drew's buck.

Thanks everybody for the kind words! My Grandpa was the greatest man that I have ever known and there is no doubt in my mind that he was with us when Drew shot the biggest deer that has ever been taken to my knowledge off of Grandpa's property. Definitely a bitter sweet feeling....

Six years ago on this youth weekend Andrew killed his 1st deer at 6 years old...

http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee238/lungbusted/this1.jpg (http://s229.photobucket.com/user/lungbusted/media/this1.jpg.html)

Today he killed his 16th deer! I can't even begin to comprehend how fast these last few years have went. Andrew is such an amazing hunter for his age and he makes me so proud each and every time he has success in the woods!! He shot this deer at 65 yds free handed as we were walking into our buddy stand this afternoon.

Addison killed her 6th deer last night, a nice big doe! Addy had decided earlier this year that she wasn't going to hunt this year and I got to admit that I was bummed. I really cherished our time together in the woods. She never bowhunted and didn't want to go during youth season. Last week she told me that she wanted to gun hunt and we went shooting and she was pumped to go again. We hunted Monday and came close, seen nothing Tuesday and she connected yesterday. She was fired up and it was good to see! Deer was also killed on Grandpa's land too.

Good shit. Great smile. Congrats

12-01-2016, 07:51 AM
Got to love these kids and hunting, I remember when all three of my kids were into hunting, now their all grown and got careers, one is military, one in medical school, and one works at a medical facility, so no hunting for now,
Enjoy the time you have to spend with those kids as it probally will end at some point in time.
But the memories will last forever.
That was a really nice buck, Tell him I said congrats, Job done well sir, and to the dad too, job done well.

12-01-2016, 07:57 AM
Congrats to the little lady well done

12-01-2016, 08:05 AM
Congrats too Addy, glad to see the fire is still there....

12-01-2016, 10:59 AM
How awesome is that, congrats to both the youth hunters, glad to see these kids are our up and coming hunters, great stuff.

12-01-2016, 11:04 AM
Good to see! Glad she came around and wanted to go.

12-01-2016, 01:49 PM
Nice! Congrats to you both!

Had to feel great when she was ready to hit the woods again! Sounds like she stayed after it too before things aligned perfectly!

12-01-2016, 09:18 PM
Heck yeah, Andrew. Nice shooting. Congrats!

12-01-2016, 10:11 PM

Congrats to Addy and dad!!! Great stuff!

That's great. It's crushing when your little girl says she doesn't want to hunt anymore. I'm glad she came to her senses!:)

12-02-2016, 07:47 AM
Congrats to your daughter! Glad to see she has found the fire again!
