My 9 year old son and I just got back from the SCI sponsored doe hunt. We had a great time, my sons first buck trumps any elk or deer I have shot, very excited.

" 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

Well this was my last season as a youth, figured I'd post up my first limit. 4 greenwings, a wigeon, a gadwall (my first as well), and a pintail hen.
