Default Deer hunt wih Kids

Took both my kids (4 year old boy and 7 year old girl) out this past Saturday to hunt muzzleloader. Had this 8 pointer come into the feeder about 7:15 pm. Made a nice clean shot on him and man, we're my kids jacked! First deer hunt with Daddy and something I'll remember the rest of my life. Everything was going perfect until I got careless skinning him and ended the evening in the ER getting 6 stitches in my thumb. But, all is well and would do it all over again if given the chance. Hope I got the pictures attached correctly.

congrats on the buck and having a great family memory. Last November I had to wheel my buddy to the PA ER to get 6 in his thumb. he's a guy with over 40 years deer hunting under his belt, happens to anybody.

I cannot wait until my son is old enough to come out with me, must have been an amazing experience for all of you.

Hope the thumb recovers quickly!

AWESOME man! I wish my 4 year old could go with me but he's WAAAY too loud and would probably have to poop or pee 5 minutes into the hunt. haha

I love him to death, but he's just not ready for hunting yet. :)

It was awesome! I thought the same thing, mainly because I'm pretty sure my 4 year old has ADHD. But, I'm telling you he sat in that blind for a little over a hour and just looked out the window. We had some gummy worms which kept him busy, but he did great! He's been asking 3 times a week if we can go again. It's hard explaining to a 4 year old what "seasons" are. Told him we're going to shoot a doe but that doe like the snow so we half to wait until Christmas when it's cold and snowy. I tell you another rewarding part is that we've been eating venison 3 times a week and both my kids love it! So now, every time we sit down and eat some venison we get to talk about the hunt and they get all excited again.

That's awesome man! I think I'm going to try him out next year when he's 5. I think he'll sit still a little longer and be a little more quieter!

Congrats to you again!
