Those are some great deer! It

Those are some great deer! It is always good to see the young ones getting into the sport and having success. I would not have minded coming across your nephews buck during muzzle loader season... great buck! Of course I would not have minded coming across any of the deer that you have hanging on your walls during muzzle loader season either.

I love those smiling faces. 

I love those smiling faces.  If a picture is worth a thousand words, these pics are worth 10,000.  I can feel the pride and sense of accomplishment on their faces.  And let's not forget the deer.  They are really nice, but I bet if they were spikes they would be just as happy.

Thanks for sharing.

Congratulations!

Congratulations to the two young hunters!  I'm sure they are pretty proud of their trophies and they should be!  They have already harvested bigger deer in their young lives than I have in my not-as-young life! lol   

I always love to read stories about hunting and see pictures of other's success but, there is always something special about seeing successful pictures of the young hunters and their trophies.

With all the other options young kids have these days to occupy their time, it seems like there are fewer and fewer that actually enjoy hunting.

Every time I take my boys out hunting, we always end up at some point with the following exchange.

"Thanks Dad"

"No problem Buddy, sure beats staying home playing video games, huh?"

"Sure does!"

And that's all I need to hear!!!

Thanks for the great comments

Thanks for the great comments guys ! My daughter was very sad that she did not take a buck this year, but she was also happy that her tag was a second choice tag so she still had a PP. So next year we can still go back after the big bucks.
