This past weekend was a big weekend for my little man. He graduated from fishing with bobbers to start using beetle spins, inline spinners and crappie jigs. For those that bring a four year old in the stand with them and everything lines up including a small buck him being quiet and patient to getting a shot opportunity you understand how much this deer means to me and him and the memories he'll have for a lifetime. He caught a turtle, bowfin, chain pickerel, multiple bass, crappie, bluegill, warmouth and catfish. He wants to go back to "hunt camp" next weekend already.
The kid popped him a doe Sunday afternoon, they were already in the foodplot when we got there so we had to sneak up and find a good tree to prop on. His longest shot, about 125 yards. The 120bt out of his 260rem is heck on deer.
My nephew when he was little, laughing at his poppa, after he slid into this farm pond, while trying to wash the worm dirt off his hands. My dad rubbed cow mud on his face about .4 seconds after this pic was snapped, lol.
