Smile Sons 1st Bow Kill

This was a wonderful afternoon. Tanner had passed on several does as we waited on a buck that was still 70 yards out. The painful wait was wreakin havoc on my nerves. Finally the buck was 18yds. quartering away and Tanner " Let him have it" I hollered for joy this is the first animal he has ever fired a bow. I was shaking so bad it took me 20 min. before I could climb out of my stand & go help him out of his treestand. The deer ran 80yds. He is an 8pt. 160 lbs.

That's awesome!!! There is nothing like seeing your son shoot his first deer. I too had the same experience this Nov when my youngest (14) shot his first deer, a button buck. My hands were shaking so bad watching the deer come in that I thought I was going to come unglued. Congrats on this great moment! Very nice "first" buck!!

wtg young man stick with it
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
