I think my son has braggin rights for this year he shot his first deer ever.
He shot a doe about 100 pounds. He was as excited as I was. I was setting behind him when he shot the deer. He was as cool as a cucumber.
We are not horn hunters here we hunt for the meat.
We never use bait here it is illegal.

Just got back from a little pre thanksgiving outing this morning, with my daughter (crosshairs). She took a 5x5 whitetail. That was the easy part, the steep uphill drag in the snow added the real fun, but more than worth it. She is so excited and keeps reminding me its bigger than mine :smile:
I love this type of topic my children go hunting with me when ever they like. Im a single mom of two kids. I do not push them going with me but they get real happy when mom brings home the deer, the part they never forget is a tradition of them kissing the heart after it is cleaned to tell god thank you for our prize. they are getting a little old for that it is getting harder and harder to get them to kiss it anymore lol ow well another story to tell when they are adults.
Wind is one of the most crucial variables in any kind of big game hunting. It helps level the playing field between a hunter with a scoped rifle and the game animals being hunted. This is not novel information. Any hunter who has consistent success in the field knows this. I have tried a couple different techniques for keeping track of the wind. Here are a couple.
The most simple and obvious is to just stay cognizant of it. It is amazing how slight of a breeze you can sense if you just pay...
