Was my sons last youth day and he was jacked up as usual . We had a good morning hunt with with one buck that tempted him but he passed and several smaller bucks and does . Also had a nice encounter with a bobcat .
Afternoon hunt we moved to another property and lots of deer piling out to a cut corn field . 4 or 5 small bucks were out , some chasing does but nothing he was interested in taking . It amazes me how our kids today are letting these young bucks walk but I love it . Legal shooting light ends and his youth days are over . But..... We are stuck in the tree waiting for some deer to clear out when a really nice 8 pops out 30 yards away following a doe . With the snow you could see him as clear as day but 10 minutes to late . Agonizing to sit and watch him walk off but it was the right thing to do . It was a great day in the field with him and one we will always remember . Time has gone by so fast and we will truly miss these youth days .
