My Boy Is A Hunter Too!

(WARNING: Photo of my little deer hunter and his first deer. I know some of you don't like the more graphic photos related to hunting so come back tomorrow! Thanks!)

Jake took his first deer this afternoon, a button buck! This weekend was youth season in Kentucky. He had been practicing with his .243 he got for Christmas last year. I knew he could hit the target but wondered how he would do with "the real thing!" All you hunters here would have been proud! He was as steady as a rock!

He dropped him where he stood! He also helped me dress him out but said I have to cook it! I bet he eats his fair share of it! He told me he thought he was ready to kill one with "big ole antlers" now! What can I say, hunting is in our blood and his Dad and I are very proud of him!

Congratulations Jake - Master Deer Slayer!!

Congratulations from me, too, Jake! That is fantastic!
I can't manage a pistol for shooting, haha. That's a nice rifle.

Hey there, popped over from Lana's blog. I saw your pic and had to congratulate your boy. My boys hunt, too,(they're grown now) my husband does a little. I grew up with it - used to tease my dad that I didn't know what beef was til I got married!

I've got nice bloody-tongue-hanging-out dead dear pics at my house and we're proud to show them! Good job, there, young man! You know he can provide for his family now!

Congrats to Jake. That smile is from ear to ear. I killed my first deer with a .243.

What fabulous photos... and memories! Boy, he must have been so proud (though never as proud as mum and dad would be ;)

May he have many happy years of hunting ahead of him... and may you have many years of cooking!

That's a great pic! And not graphic at all. When my son got his first button buck, he and his dad smeared some of the blood on his cheeks and then took the pic. A great one for the scrapbook! LOL! Stevie@ruffledfeathersandspilledmilk.com

That's not bad at all! The reality is, the deer population is out of control, and its just a way of culling them. As long as he respects nature and the animal, its great!
