How great is the youth hunt weekend?! My 9 year old son and I were in a ground blind over a small patch watching a spike and a couple of yearlings when this nice buck walked out. After he got his rifle propped out of the window he said "dad, I'm too nervous to keep it still". HA! I told him I was nervous too and we were gonna wait and watch the deer for 5 minutes. When he was ready he got propped again and made a perfect double shoulder shot at 80 yards. He was shooting his PawPaw's .30-30 that passed down to him last year. He's so shy it's hard to get him to smile for the camera but he couldn't hardly get to sleep that night. I had a trail cam picture of the buck from early October.
