I'm glad to hear that you are

I'm glad to hear that you are getting a young kid out there. More people need to make this happen or our tradition is going to dwindle to almost nothing after my generation is gone. Congratulations and thank you for doing your part. How did the hunt turn out? Or is the season still going? Good luck to you guys and I hope she gets one! Here's to her putting a big one on the ground!

I am glad that you guys had a good time. That is what it is all about. I remember when getting something was the only thing I had on my mind. I was young and really just wanted to fill my tag. I liked the time spent with my dad but I did not realize how precious those times are. You can bet your bottom dollar that I do now. Hunting with family and friends is the best way time can be spent in my opinion.

That is awesome that you had some good deer walking in front of you. Hopefully that beast that she is looking for will pop out come rifle season.

Hey Critter, I don't have an

Hey Critter, I don't have an opinion either way, but I am curious.... Will you let her shoot any buck, or are you holding out for a big one?  Does she already have any bucks under her belt?

Like I said, just curious.  I imagine if you live in an area where you see a lot of bucks, you can be selective.  However, out here, or back in Vermont, my kid would be taking the first legal one that came along.... lol

Hope to see some success photos soon!  Good luck!!!

Her Option

I let her choose whats she wants,but I would like her to shoot something really nice. She passed on a couple of 150 inch bucks cause we saw some bigger one. We couldn't get her close enough to shoot the big one, they were a little to far for her. The big ones were around 170. She shoot a little button buck last year.

That's cool.  Nice photos! If

That's cool.  Nice photos!

If a 150 inch buck walks past me this fall in Vermont, I probably will let it walk to.... cause I'll be #*$#&# my pants..... :lol:   But you live in Kansas, and that's got a couple more in the books than Vermont does, so you can hold out...... Yes

Great pics and good job on

Great pics and good job on getting you daughter out there, and good job on teaching her to be patiant and to hold out for the buck she really wants and letting  the little ones grow up. even though theres nothing wrong with shooting a little guy. my kids arent old enough yet but i still get them out to teach about deer/elk and there habitats and movements and stuff like that so when they are old enough there filled with all the knowledge they need.

You Bet

You have to get them out while they are young. All animals are trophy's in our book. We like them to shoot the smaller ones for starters but she wants a big one.

My 15 year old neice was able to take her first buck Fri. evening. She made a great shot from 18 yards. It was a really good time for both of us.
