“I was going into work late today and my wife had to be at work early so it was my responsibility to take Jayden to school. We chose to be a little late and get a quick hunt in this morning .
I am so proud of how he is developing as a young hunter and braving the cold weather and the early wake up calls that go along with it. His shooting is really improving. We had some close calls last Saturday morning but the deer would not cooperate. This morning was different and we had two does walk in behind our stand. After a little wait he was able to put one in the boiler room. Sshe didn’t run far and I watched her topple over about 75 yards from us.
This was his first blood trail we had to “follow” even though I knew where she was lying, teachable moments are hard to pass up with me. Anyway we will be back out Saturday morning, Lord willing, and hopefully he will have his hands around a set of antlers. One of the deer from last Saturday was a small 6 point that I said he could shoot. He can’t wait!”
Jim, you guys are creating quite some memories out there. I think that being a little late for school is certainly fine when the excuse is something as important as hunting! Good luck getting Jayden on to a buck!
