My 10 year old son's first deer hunt.

My 10 year old son, Luke and I had a great time together in NM. Luke had been looking forward to his first big game hunt for many months. We hunted hard and hiked many miles. He made his Dad proud of his "stick to it ness" and didn't give up. We saw a lot of deer but couldn't find a legal buck to save our lives. We moved camp 26.2 miles and found this buck. We prayed and God guided us right to him. He was the herd buck and had a bunch of does. Luke made a great shot with his sister's 30-06. The handloads TGWH did for us did him in with one shot.

Nice job! I'm sure that's going to be a great memory for you both for years to come. It's so important for young people to be exposed to hunting in a positive way!

I can't wait until my son and daughters are old enough to go hunting with me. My daughters will soon be.

Hiker, congrats to you and Luke. A memory that will last forever and a great deer. We need more parents willing to take their kids hunting and pass on to them what we learned from ours.
