I'm not sure who was more excited over my son's first deer me or him. I grew up with no one to show me how to hunt. My dad only fished but I loved to hunt the small stuff when I went back to VA to visit my grandparents. I didn't even shoot my first big game animal until about 5 years ago. This was a big deal for me to see him harvest his first deer. Unfortunately my oldest son (17) didn't get one this year. I'm sure this is going to continue for many years to come.
