Wow everyone, I am truly stunned by the response.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate the kindness everyone has towards the situation.  I apologize for being slow in responding.  You all are amazing to offer financial support.  Loch just had a birthday and we got him a rifle so we are good there.  I'm not as avid a hunter as some so I'm still trying to brainstorm on what gear he needs.  I certainly appreciate any help people are willing to give in compiling a list.  As Wunderlich33 said, financial times are tough and I didn't come here for a handout but love the community that we have stumbled into.  Just know that everyone's offer has left our family speechless.

Additionally, I am amazed by the offers of land to hunt.  Thank you so much for being willing to help Loch out.  I will reach out to everyone that sent me messages and again, thank you so much for all of your kindness.

What an amazing bunch of people here. Perhaps someone with the know how could set up a gofundme thing or something along those lines.

So few things I can think of off the top of my head since he has a rifle.


Binoculars
Knife
Good jacket
Boots
Rifle scope?
Ammo
Clothing


Did we figure out a point man for collecting money and ordering gear?

If he gets his buck and doesn't mind leaving it with me, I could do the euro mount for him. We would just have to figure out the best way to get it back to them in Monroe. With all the travelling and hunting on this site it shouldn't be too difficult to get it back over the hill.

yeah definitely can't see that as an issue. Plenty of folks going back and forth.

Hey all, it was suggested that I post here as I'm looking for assistance to help on my son's first deer hunt.  My son is 11 years old and this will be his first year hunting.  Although he is beyond excited about this, both he and I (and of course his mama) have a great deal of concern due to his difficulty in walking any great distance.  My son was born without a right hip joint and a deformed right femur.  He has had at least 12 surgeries to grow and shape his body but he remains greatly limited in his mobility.  He tries to push himself and we don't go easy on him but I know that he is in constant pain and I would love to alleviate some of the difficulties and make this first year hunting a bit easier.  With these challenges, I'm looking to see if anyone has any nuisance deer or knows of where my son could have a chance to shoot an animal this fall.  I'm not looking for any sort of trophy buck, I just want him to have some success and ignite a love for hunting.  I understand that this may be a big ask but any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you so much.

Josh     

I have a pair of binoculars that you can have. Also have a good idea for a hunting area for you guys this Fall. PM sent.

Thinking early October morning In a ground blind, count me in for a youth top and bottom base layer and gloves.

You guys are going to have the time of your lives and I hope the young man finds a Lifelong passion as the sunrises! :tup:
Just tend your own and live.

Did we get word on rifle caliber?

I am in for a couple boxes of rifle ammo. Gotta know soon, as the pickings are slim these days.
