My boys got it done!!

Recommended Posts

Well the day had finally arrived and the boys hunt was here. We were watching some smaller bucks starting to bed when Shane says "I got a good buck for Owen" we watch the good buck as he went into his bed and after making a plan we had decided our only option was to get in close. We decide to split up and me and my son made the 1000 yard stalk and got to the spot we wanted to be. We set up and I told my son it was going to be a long wait, but we were there, and once he stood up it would get real exciting ..real fast. Wind was blowing hard in our face and we were 85 yards from the buck. The wait was on from 8:30-3:30 I was so proud of my son. He was going on hour 7 when I looked up hill and the buck was up, I said okay buddy he's standing there, get in your gun. Like all 11 year olds I said do you see him in your scope and he said ... "no". Now mind you I'm looking Into the eyes of a stud coues less than 100 yards up the hill from us and calm as could be my son says.." I see that cactus we were practicing on" I zoom him in to max power and he says dad there's a deers head oh wait he has horns.. dad there really big horns!!.. I'm heart pounding, don't look at his horns (smiling from ear to ear) .. you got him son now just wait and he'll step forward. I hear the safety click he said dad Im perfect on him. Ok just wait and right then that buck stepped towards us exposing his whole body. I look to my son and said go ahead when your ready and before I could look back to my binos the shot was off. The buck didn't go 20 yards, piled up In the rocks he was bedding in. The excitement kicked in ..we were laughing ,hugging, highfiving ..he had done it.. what some may never get to experience in there whole life.. in walking up on one of these old brutes... I have been hunting these deer since I was his age and may never shoot a buck of this caliber and that's fine cause the look in my young boys eyes, when it was over .. was well worth it.

well after the dust had cleared and pictures were done, we set off to fill my nephews tag. post-12830-0-94779700-1507467922_thumb.png

He loved this young velvet buck and was proud to have him. My nephew had put in work as well, shooting this deer on a follow up shot, the buck stopped at 270 yards and clay smoked him. I was very happy with the way these boys hunted. All in all we had a successful season and the boys are hooked for life.
