We're super late but we're in. Steph didn't get home from work until after 3 so we dumped the hammer and headed this way. Wind is a little sketchy but it is what it is. Wish us luck, Will is headed home tonight. I'd like to send him that way with some back straps!

My very first muzzleloader deer ever. I don't know how many times I've seen this deer this year... He should have send one of his bigger buddies in earlier in the year lol. Momma wanted deer meat and that's what she got!

It's way more fun that I really thought it would be and a 250gr bullet makes a STUPID blood trail!

I got Colton and a good friend of his (who I darn near raised) settled in behind the house....perfect bow set up with this southeast wind. Colton's friend Tyler is after his first deer with a crossbow. Colton will be guiding him and if a big ol doe pops out, I don't have any doubt there will be blood. I'm watching the set up 200 yards away.

Here is my bow set up down the road. Covered up in venison right now.



We need a north wind for that set up which will happen Saturday. Nothing out back yet.

A couple more pics. Tyler put a text book shot on this doe...took out heart n lungs and watched her drop in sight. He is hooked! I watched it all play out from afar. They had a lone doe come in at first but she wouldn't settle in good. They could of taken a shot but I have stressed to Colton over the years to let them settle in. She didn't and walked off. I was impressed. 10 min later 4 mature doe came in with a couple of nubbers in tow. One of the does was obviously bigger and darker than the others. Hmmmm, after all my talks with Colton over the years, would he wait for her to get right or get Tyler setup on a doe that was closer but not as big. Me and my boy sure think alike! He waited for that big knot head doe to work in and then waited for her to turn and gave Tyler the green light. The x trick tore her up! Good times watching these youngins use their hunting instincts and enjoy themselves under the open sky. To be continued after this cold front blows in.

Sure can. I know you've been doing the same thing with your boys over the years. I'm far from the perfect dad but when I see my son's deep passion for the outdoors (hunting, fishing, artifact hunting etc.) whatever it may be, I at least know I did something right along the way.

I took Ol Tyler on his very first deer hunt when he was 9. He didn't hunt but he was with Colton when he shot a doe. Tyler has been ate up with it ever since. He also grew up hunting our place in Madison County that recently sold. He killed every single one of his deer up there except this one he killed yesterday evening.

Tyler's first deer hunt with us.




Well, we are going to wait on that north wind so no hunting today. These 2 will be back in the stand Saturday afternoon and Colton is up to bat trying to get his first ever kill with his bow. He's taken plenty with the crossbow but he's ready to pull back on something.

Man, y'all are some killin' machines! I've got the grinding meat from my axis doe in the back of my truck. Gonna drop it off this afternoon and get one more batch of sausage/ground meat done. I hope to get to go back at least one more time and get a crack at that big ol buck that has been eluding me all year. I haven't even seen him live this year, but my Covert is sending me pics of him pretty regular... Well, him and a couple of his buddies that will get whacked if they step out before he does. Good luck to all you guys who still have tags left use use with them smoke-poles.

My boy Colton is an old soul I guess you could say. He doesn't have an instagram/twitter account (his decision) but does have a facebook that he rarely posts on. He was raised listening to old school country music and that is all that he listens to. If you throw some hip hop/rap music in front of him, he has no clue who they are. Heck, I even listen to some good ol hip hop from time to time. Now my step son Brett is just about the same. Loves him some good old school country. He's going on 22 come March...we call him Bocephus. He's about 6'4", 280 pds or so, very kind hearted fella, loves guns and a strong whiskey n coke. Sure love these 2 boys.
