Live hunt from 17 with my 4yro

Recommended Posts

My daughter wanted to join me so I said yes. Hopefully it was the right decision. We got here late because I was trying to get her ready. We get here right after 2 and one of the bucks I'm after (a tall 8)is in front of the blind I wanted to go to. Decided to go to a blind I set up yesterday instead and as I get out of the truck there's the  9 pointer walking out in to the field. I tried putting a stalk on the 9 with her in the truck, but I didn't see the doe in the wood line she spotted me and took off. He stayed with her nose to the ground.

We start walking to the spot and I have to carry her (have to go through some water) and everything else. Finally get to the blind sweating like a pig.

Thank you I'll need it. She got excited and spooked the bigger one off. After 5 min of it feeding. Asking why I wouldn't shoot it since it was right there. Lol it's definitely an adventure so far.

Excellent teaching opportunity right there - "It's not about the kill, honey. Maybe I want to spend more time with you right now :) "

Thanks.  It's been fun so far. Seen a bunch of deer 6 bucks, but only shooters were in the field when I got here. Just had a4 pointer Chase off a group of does. He was dogging the biggest doe.  I might be out in the rain tomorrow by myself. Plan on taking my 6yro out Saturday afternoon

That's great stuff right there. 

Priceless. 

Enjoy it. 

My boys didn't want to hunt today but just wanted to check cameras.  Uugghh. They hate sitting still   lol. 

We didn't bump any deer surprisingly.  We checked em between 1045am and 1pm. Cams showing more afternoon movement. Zone 19/23.
