My 12yo son, Bryce, did a little youth deer hunting with my father over the weekend. It’s a tradition with them. He got a 4 pt yesterday, not the biggest but he passed on a couple of does Saturday. It’s at the processor waiting to be cleared by the state. Looking forward to smoking some venison.

pa42phigh pa42phigh So true. He likes being able to say "My deer.." when it goes on the grill/oven.

TuckersBarbeque TuckersBarbeque Actually he has gotten a deer youth weekend for the last 3 yrs. My dad says he is the luckiest thing to walk into the woods. He has gotten bigger deer (rack wise) but dad knew we were wanting meat in the freezer so he let him take this one after passing on a couple of does.

That's great! Congrats to your son! Been on many hunts with young hunters and just can't beat seeing the pride and smiles when they get a deer.

Congratulations to your son, Jim!!
There's nothing like a grandfather/grandson relationship. Your Dad sounds like a great man, taking his grandchildren hunting with him.

That's great to see and hear about!
Looks like it might be a nice and tender deer.

What caliber and rifle is he hunting with there?

Nice! When I want a deer on the ground with little to no need for tracking (evening hunts, I despise tracking in the dark) I use my 30-06. I tell folks that on our small bodied TX deer it blasts them right into the freezer from where they are standing :P

I'm going to attempt to personally pillar and glass bed my Mosin Nagant to see if I can make it have respectable accuracy with a little bit of load development. At that point I'll have the "Russian 30-06" as a viable option as well :)

I'm hoping to get some pig action going soon and won't need so much power. I'll need something that has the ability to knock down as many wild pigs as I can before they all run off and I've got some options for that. Hoping to get about 200-350lbs of pork on the hoof to turn into about 80-120lbs of meat in the freezer :)

Congrats to your son on yet another successful hunt.
Good on your Pop for getting the youngsters into the woods.

As long as I live I'll never forget my son taking his first deer/buck, and I no longer really care if I take a deer or not as long as he does... I don't think he'll ever forget either.

SWEET!!!!!!!
First buck's are a BIG deal in my family.
Your boy looks pumped and both he and you should be. Is that a Remington Mod. 7400 .243?

Edit: I just saw the Caliber of his gun, that's a pretty big thumper for a kid...LOL!!!
