I thought I would share my son’s first deer kill, a 5 point, taken on the first day of deer season in WV. I’m not much of a hunter, I’m always working this time of the year, but my father-in-law is an avid sportsman and this was the first time taking him out on the first day. We usually get to go out Thanksgiving day and have since Trey (my son) has shown any kind of interest but have never had any luck.
This year I took him down on Sunday night and they have went every day this week. Wayne almost had tears in his eyes telling me how proud he was in how he didn’t rush and waited for the right moment to take the shot. He even stayed tonight and wants to go back out tomorrow and Saturday. Great seeing a kid whose primary form of entertainment is video games take such a great interest in the outdoors. My youngest even stayed behind to go out with them for a little while. Maybe he will get his first at a younger age.
