Thanks to all those hunters and your advice, I look forward to checking out the videos. I was up north last weekend scouting for some elk buddies of mine who drew bull elk tags, going to be a great year.
I was having a beer with my friend Mike Miller, and he was saying that not many kids are being introduced into hunting and that the numbers are going down. Well I will be taking my boy elk hunting and showing him the ropes, elk hunting is my real passion, however my boy wants to get into deer hunting, so thanks again.
Good deal introducing your son to hunting. In our camp, we have 2-3 that may start hunting this year. If not this year, then next year they'll be ready. Whatever he hunts will be good for you and him. It will be good having him with you in the outdoors. Good luck this season!
I took a quick look at the Hollow Boys, and I see food plots they are hunting off of. What I am looking for are videos/shows that scout a wild deer not a conditioned deer where man has planted a food plot. I would assume the Canada ones are more what I am looking for. One of the things I have been teaching my son is when we see a deer in the wild we watch what it is eating, and keep track of what it eats most. One time we watched a deer for over 30 minutes mill around in one spot which is very unusal to see a wild one that long. However what we found is the acorns had fallen off the wild oaks which was a very important lesson learned that day in regards to stand location, etc. The food plots are designed to keep the deer there at times when they should not be there because it is the best tasting thing to them it is not natural. I am looking for no man introduced feeding videos.

As you can see I'm new to this forum. I have been hunting over 40 years, yes I'm that old! I have a new DVD series coming out "Learn to Hunt for Beginners" It's not a sponsored show,just an answer to a request by new hunters everywhere. Here is a link to a short 7 min clip.
I recently completed my first skull plate mount of my buck antelope from the 2010 season. I used a kit from Van Dykes, and I thought I would pass along the tips my dad shared with me, as well as one or two I figured out on my own. I have only completed the one antelope kit, but these tips should work for kits for other species as well.
1. Leave as much depth to the skull as possible when you remove the antlers/horns from the skull of the animal. This...
