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.
