I'm still excited for him... he's in school and i'm sitting here at home waiting patiently for him to get home so we can go to the check station to report it in.

Thanks for entering the pic for us, I actually thought the cut off age was 15 so I didn't even look into it but he'll be happy to hear he's in the contest once again..

Vermonts youth hunt is for 15 and under, soon as you turn 16 you're no longer considered a youth hunter..

ours is age 6 to 16. on our young sportsman hunts someone 21 or older has to be with them at all times. which is awesome. i dont like the thought of a party of 6-10 yr olds walking through the woods by thereself with loaded guns

Bruce,

Congrats to you and Phillip on what I'm sure was a memorable hunt. Can't wait till my sons are old enough to have similar experiences. Thanks for sharing.

Well today was the last day for The vermont bow season.. I didn't fill my tag but that's fine, This isn't the first and it wont be the last tag I get to hang onto.

During the season I had chances at a couple different Doe's but those were iffy shots and I'd rather make a good safe kill shot than take an iffy shot that might ony wound that Deer..

Thankfully, I was there while Phillip got his Doe (and first bow kill) which once again creates a memorable 2007 Bow season for sure......

Now I have to wait for the vermont rifle season which starts Nov. 10th 2007, In the meantime good luck to all you hunters still in season... Be safe and be successful

kudos to you and phillip.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
