Default Hopefully this will be the shortest live hunt ever

Our good friends have allowed us the honor of taking their eight year old son hunting on a few occasions.

With us, he has killed both his first dove and his first doe.

Today, he turns 9, so we are out for a management buck.

Hes stuck hunting with Courtney this morning, while his Dad and I man the blind on the other end of the ranch.

Hes armed with a brand spanking new 6.5 creedmore Ruger American that mysteriously showed up at his house a couple of weeks ago.

Wish us luck!

If you ever figure out who sent the rifle to him you should give him/her a pat on the back! Awesome gesture!
