This is just awesome.  I had a similar experience with my son and his first deer.  My old man was there and passed away this summer.  I will never forget it.  Good on ya Pathfinder :tup:

This was the best success write up this season! Absolutely awesome to see all the hard work he (and dad) put into the hunt and after being blessed with a great buck, awesome to see the humble thankfulness. It's good to know there are parents out there raising their kids right and creating a lifelong genuine hunters. Congrats to all!  :tup: :tup:

Awesome 6x6 :tup: :chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:

Not a 6x6. That's a 4x4 with eyeguards and droptines.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

as a HE instructor it gives me a sense of pride seeing the new generation hunting....we are losing new hunters due to many things-peer pressure, video games, home computers, loss of hunting area etc., etc.,...makes my day seeing youngsters enjoying the outdoors...great job little man  :tup:

I am a Hunter Education Instructor as well.  I would say that the biggest problem we have is loss of hunting areas.  I qualify about 40 kids a year in my high school class and along with 2 other instructors we qualify another 60 or so in classes out at the gun club.  A lot of my students don't come from hunting families and don't have a place to hunt.  They always ask me where to go.  I feel bad sending them to the same FFTH places, but I don't know what else to tell them anymore...

Kid is ruined for life. :chuckle:   My first buck was a spike.  Like 7 inches long.  I thought for sure it was the biggest spike ever.   Um, I've killed how many bucks, some pretty good ones at that.   Never a double dropper.  :rolleyes: 8) :chuckle:
Congratulations!

Thanks everyone.  I will look into the Hunting Reg thing today when I get a spare moment.

I can't find anything on WDFW website right now regarding submitting photos for next year's regs.  If anyone sees or hears anything, please let me know and I will submit a photo.  Maybe they don't open it up until a while after the seasons close... :dunno:

Very awesome.  Amazing write up.  That is what it is all about.  You and your sons will never forget that moment.  Good to see you getting out there with your kids.  Congrats to the "little man", and to you for doing it right.
