Default First Bow Buck & Bobcat

I don't even know where to start. To say I'm a proud Dad would be an understatement.
We take our boys to South Texas every year to hunt a buddy's ranch in Old Frio Town.
I usually do a live hunt. For no specific reason, this year I didn't. Man do I regret it. It would have been my best live hunt yet.
A short recap of events.
Arrive Monday evening. Bryce shoots his first bobcat. Tuesday evening my youngest, Talen shoots his first ever bobcat. Got video of the whole thing. Also got a video of Bryce shooting his first turkey, bow kill.
This morning my BIL shot his biggest buck to date.
It has been a very eventful couple of days. But the grand finale was Bryce getting his first bow kill. This has been a long time coming. Over the last 5 years there have been several missed opportunities, several misses, 2 bad shots, 1 nap with a buck in the corn pile, (game cameras don't lie), and a very frustrated teenager.
He never gave up. He put up with my lectures and constructive criticism. He has definitely put his time in on the stand and it paid off today.
I literally fought back tears today as I watched & filmed him smoke this buck and I couldn't be more proud of him.
