Great write up.  I was away this weekend and wondered how this ended up.  Congrats to you both.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Pretty dang awesome! Good work dad and congrats on a fine trophy young man!

Awesome story and pics. The one of your son expressing his emotions is priceless.

Iíve been hunting since I could walk with my dad (nearly 60 yrs) and I still find the first few moments with a big game animal at my feet is a somber time...donít get me wrong, thereís still loads of elation, relief, excitement, but taking a life is something that still moves me.
ďJust give me a comfortable couch, a dog, a good book, and a woman. Then if you can get the dog to go somewhere and read the book, I might have a little fun.Ē

Congrats to dad and the young man!  Thanks for sharing.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Same here, at it always should. It shows we're human and that we have respect and admiration for the animals we kill. Good on the kiddo for letting it flow, it's a good thing :)
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.
