Default 3yo loves hunting- shot a buck with pic

My three year old loves hunting already. I rarely watch the outdoor channel except for this week we have been watching Uncle Ted every morning when I get off the night shift.

When he was 2yo he started making elk calls.

The other day he went with mom on a walk around the neighborhood and wanted to take his bow to shoot rabbits, bring them home to cook and then put on the wall for Daddy.

Yesterday he took the head off my buck target and told my wife he shot it and wants the head on the wall.

This morning he shot my buck target, and then got a flash light and asked me to help him trail blood. Then he wanted the following picture taken.

BTW- it was HIS idea to lay it down, put his rifle by it and hold it by the antlers!

These kids at this age are VERY perceptive.

(Ps- Iíve never shot this bow target, itís all been with his small toy bow)
