You will never be able to tell my little 8 year old that a well placed 223 wont drop a deer in it's tracks. Man am I proud. All the shooting off the bench I have done with him paid off on his first whitetail deer hunt. Got in the shooting house about 4:00 and 15 minutes later the opportunity arrived. 80 yards, dropped like a sack of taters. What a feeling to be there for my youngest frist deer of many. I am one proud dad right now.

That's the best hunting story that I've heard all year! Congrats to you and your boy. My three-year old is too young to hunt, but he was with my when I went to recover, field dress, drag and butcher my deer this year. He was so into it, and it was so exciting to see. I look forward to days with him just like you had with yours.

Best,

K.K

Congratulations to both of you!!!!

My 6 year old daughter will be ready in a year or two and I can't wait.

The most beautiful part of the whole thing is that kids that are exposed to hunting, fishing, trapping, as well as animal agriculture grow up experiencing life and death, guns, work ethic, and a general lifestyle that more times than not strengthens them into grounded quality adults.

Regards,

Smoky

Congrats to all you fathers, (mothers) and the sons (or daughters ) on your successful hunts. Two of my grandsons got there first deer on youth day last weekend. The 8 yr old shot his with his dads Ruger 257 Roberts ( with youth stock ) and the 10 yr old his with his own Ruger 77 Compact in 7mm-08. Both boys made one shot kills through the front shoulders. The boys and there dads are so proud. OLD GRAMP is pretty proud also. My 11 yr old grand daughter was pretty bummed out because see didn't get one this year on youth day. But she was looking for a buck because see had already gotten 2 doe's from the last 2 years.
So keep those young hunters interested and keep them hunting & shooting.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL IN REGULAR HUNTING SEASON
