Took my 8 year old step son hunting for the 3rd time and he spotted this guy. I was hoping it was a doe but turned out to be a button buck. Not a big deal though, as I was mainly just trying to see how he would react to whole "death" part of hunting. No problems there. And he even helped me field dress him. Time to buy him a deer rifle he can handle, I reckon. Can't wait to take him to get his first deer!



It's been raining here for three days straight. Tommorow should be awesome!

awesome job getting him out in the woods with ya. If you are looking for a good model gun for him my son also 8 shoots a rossi .243 youth model which i also cut down the stock and rebutted it so it fit into his shoulder alot better. as he gets bigger I can dawl pin the butt back on the stock. Good luck on getting him out there and getting his first deer. If you wanna throw some ideas around on how to keep these boys in the stands like with jordan I let him bring his gameboy for some of the slow times in the stand stuff like that gimmie a shout.  here is a pic of the gun.
leave a message after the beep... me and the boy is hunting

Thank you for the info wvbowhunter ,and thanks to everyone else for your compliments. 

Really gets you stoked when the youngsters go with you and show the same enthusiasm you remember having while hunting as a kid.

I took a 20 gauge Mossberg shotgun  for him loaded with buckshot on the off chance that a deer came close enough for him to shoot. I cut down a youth stock for him the same way you did on that rifle WV. But now I'm looking at just getting a .243 barrel for my NEF Handi-rifle and give it to him. I made a short stock for it too. He'll need that cut-down shotgun for dove and turkey season anyway. But shotgunning for deer around here requires getting close and I don't think he can be still or quite enough for that. 

Also, we took his Gameboy with us. He never turned it on out of 4 trips now (avg of 4 hour hunts), a few naps though. This kid is driven to hunt. He has taken out a personal vendetta against all the squirrels in my neighborhood with his pellet gun. I love it ! Dang squirrels are always ticking me off !

yea i think the nap thing is a givin. Sounds like you got a plan there with the .243 barrel.  I got jordan a .22 crickett with a tasco scope for christmas 2 years ago. we go target shooting and it is cheap and doesn't wearout his shoulder. it's a good training tool.

Congrats on the deer and also introducing a new hunter to the sport of hunting. Those times spent with your children in the woods is something that you will charish forever. Having pictures taken of the event also will bring back those memories years later. I should know both of my boys are grown now...my youngest (23 now) loves to hunt with a passion. My oldest never really took to it, but that was cause I listened to to many people saying wait till he is 13 or 14 before taking him hunting. I am here to tell you know...take them out as soon as they begin to walk...even if it is only for an hour or two. Just get them out.
