Here is a pic of my son and his first big game animal. He took this deer yesterday afternoon on a hike after spotting them feeding near the top of the mountain. We worked around up a draw and my brothers in-law went up as we saw a spike buck in with this one and others. We got within 100 yds before this one jumped up and ran out. This one is a fawn and the doe ran up the hill. My son shot this one threw the front quarters. This was the 4th deer he actual got to shoot at. It was a great time with him as he did not complain one time about any hiking we had to do. He was willing to go threw anything he had to, to shoot at a deer. He even would go check to see if he hit it. I was really proud of him and now he is anxious for this weekend for his 4 day elk hunt I have planned for him. Should of seen his face after that deer went down. He was as happy as if he shot the biggest buck. It was awesome seeing him in the field with me. He took everything in stride and he will make a great hiker and packer.LOL But here is his pic of him and his deer. I am very proud of him for wanting to hunt with me and being there with him.
