Youth weekend success 2018
« on: April 09, 2018, 09:41:34 AM »
My son was able to fill his very 1st tag with a dandy Tom Sunday afternoon.

After waking at 3:30am & sitting thru a monsoon Saturday morning we had 3 jakes & 3 hens come in but he wasn’t able to get a shot...after a lunch break we went back out for a afternoon/evening hunt with no action...

We got a later start Sunday morning & only seen 1 hen & 6 deer after sitting for 6-7 hrs & Then magic happened when a monster silently walked in from the left...

In total we sat in our blind for 18-20 hrs & Jesse did an awesome job being quiet & keeping his & our spirits up especially Saturday thru the monsoon...

" 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 long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Congrats!  Curious, were you calling while waiting in the blind?  Was this public land?  Trying to figure it out on how to do it right 😀

We did call.  Saturday we called a hen in who was yelping up a storm which helped bring in the 3 Jakes.  Sunday nothing was responding to calls as we did hear some yelping & a couple gobbles but our calls went unanswered until the Tom came in...We were set up on a private parcel next to public...

Great work on being patient.  That is a tough trait to teach.  Congratulations on your success.

Congrats to you and your son! I’m hoping to take my 9 year old out later this season. Couldn’t get out for youth season.
Can I ask what he’s shooting? Looks like a single shot break? What gauge? I have a single shot 16 ga and wondering if that would do the job for my son.
Thanks.

Thanks from the both of us & I will add a pic of his fan & his wingbone call in future upon completion...
He used a 12ga single shot, we did let him shoot some smaller hand loads prior to the larger loads...
