Default TYHP deer hunt in Christoval

I'm with my daughter (Trinity) on a youth hunt in Christoval this weekend. The targets are bucks with an unbranched antler, bucks without brow tines, and does. There are 5 kids here hunting this weekend. 4 boys and she is the only girl. We are in the stand now and so far this evening it's been slow. She was the only kid this morning to bring in deer. Trinity shot two does. Hopefully she can add to that total. We have the hunt this evening and one more in the morning

She has a 7 pt and a doe in the pen. Landowner rules are no shooting them inside the pen. These two walked up behind the feeder and jumped in. It's just a waiting game now.

Dang it's a frustrating morning so far. Had 3 doe and the 7 pt in the pen. Trinity has set motionless watching them for 40 minutes. All of a sudden they looked to the right and spooked out of the pen. They left without giving her a shot at the buck. She could have killed another doe this morning, but I had her hold off hoping the buck would give her a chance. We still have an hour, but those deer left in a hurry. No idea what they saw or heard

Well three of the four boys were able to get a doe this morning. So in all 5 kids took 7 deer this weekend. Trinity's four deer Saturday will be one she won't soon forget.

Dang I missed this! I think I can see our place on the other side of the hill in that last popup...

Really though, I can t see anything like our place. that place is pretty open. When the area had the grant funded cedar pushing, they must have been overachievers.

Congrats to Trinity and Grandpa EBH on her smackdown..

I'd like to have seen the look on those boys faces when she showed up with 4 dead before they got any..
