good night
« on: November 02, 2015, 03:18:57 PM »
Had my little man out in the stand last night,  he is 7, and pulls the required 35lb draw to be able to hunt, barely.  He has gone out a few times with dad this year already.  My cameras show that my does have been starting to move right around sundown, so we waited, and with about 15 minutes of time left, out came a little doe, she wondered in and out of the clearing for minutes,  I had Brock draw as she walked behind a bush, she stood broadside for a few seconds at about 12 yards, but as I was about to let him release, she went back into the trees, so he had to let off and wait, she came out again and he was able to draw on her again, but once again, back into the trees she went.  She never did give us a shot, but both dad and son agree, it was a great night to be in a tree.  This was the most interaction he has had with his bow, (other than a few shots at rabbits and gophers) and finally getting to draw on one has him more excited than ever to continue.  I was told it was his best night of hunting yet.

Our gun season starts this weekend, although he cant rifle hunt yet, he will be toting the 410 and trying to take care of some birds.

Sounds like an awesome night.  It will probably be more ingrained in memory than the first one he shoots.

That's great Bob, if that young man already has the mindset that it's a great hunt even when you don't fire a shot, he's on the right track.  Congrats!

A very good learning experience for Brock.  Good job, Dad, keep on doing what you're doing.

It does sound like you guys had a great night in the woods. It is a great sign that he thinks the same thing. Keep at it and it will happen sooner or later

The hardest part of having an active 7 year old in the stand is,  the 2 or 3 hours before sundown, they are bored out of their minds, cant sit still or be quite for long and want to go home, but once I tell him its almost sundown and we only have a half hour left, then he is sad because the hunt is almost over, trying to explain that we need to be in before they start moving, and to let the disturbance and scent from us coming in settle down.  I think he is slowly getting a handle on the bigger picture.

Sounds like a great hunt to me, and sounds like you have a budding hunter

Awesome and memorable hunt for both of you ! It brings back memories of hunting for squirrels with my single shot 410 .Hopefully you have some squirrels nearby as well.
