Year # two without tagging a deer
« on: January 03, 2018, 08:20:07 AM »
This is my second year in a row without putting a tag on a deer. The last two years I have  been focused on my 13 year old sons hunting and have had the best two seasons of my life. Five deer in two seasons for that young man is a truly great start at deer hunting. I did miss one nice buck with my bow but my hunting has became all about my son.

Well done! I don't have an opportunity to do it often but I get as much enjoyment in helping someone else get a deer, turkey or fish than myself. You are not only building memories he will never forget but instilling in him values and lessons that he will use for a lifetime.

I'm right there with Bluetoe, it's no longer about me killing something as much as it is with just being in the great outdoors and helping others to learn the trade. Sometimes the youngsters are teaching us and they don't even know it. My youngster is 41 and I still enjoy being outdoors with him, even though there is nothing he can teach me, he was a slow learner.  --099-780 --099-780 --099-780

That is awesome, Snort, I would be happy to help my kids get their deer, but none of them are interested in hunting.  They rather let Dad do his thing.

there is not much better than helping youngsters get that rush of excitement...heck it probably is just as satisfying or more for most parents....congrats to you on being lucky enough to have that with your kids...some never get to enjoy the outdoors  let alone anything else
my son is late thirties and hunting together is still something I enjoy very much..

Enjoy this time. It's  very cool. I remember my son's first deer. I showed him how to gut a deer. Showed him the internal organs. I get done. He said, dad does it always take you this long to gut a deer. Great moment.
