Default Daddy - Daughter 1st hunt! LIVE

About to embark on what I hope to be the first of many hunting adventures with my princess. I’ll be shooting because we need to work on shooting skills a little more. Next year she will be shooting. This will be a short trip because there’s no telling how this will go haha. We have this evenings hunt and a morning hunt before we head back. Here goes nothing!!



Breakfast going down and headed south!

Good luck! I took my daughter the first time last year and she loved it. I'll be taking her tomorrow with me again for a day hunt. She loves going now.

I did get a little worried as she was with me last year when I shot two deer and she wanted to name them. It was her way of showing them respect though. Was funny the first time we were eating them she asked is this Drake or Bubbles?

Names - Drake because it starts with a d and that one collapsed in the creek so I had to wade in to retrieve him, i.e. like a duck
Bubbles because she had blood bubbles around her mouth

Do something that is unique to her going. Mine asks me to put her hail in a ponytail for her now when we go because the first time I took her I did it and said that I've never had to do that before. With 2 brothers, she knows that's unique to her.

Sometimes I feel like a prison guard rationing food cause she is always asking for it. If it was up to her she woulda ate all three snacks the second we sat down!

We have just entered the phase of asking why the deer isn’t here yet and wanting to know if he is lost.... haha

Good stuff.

Enjoy it.

I remember a backpack full of snacks and juice pouches on the way to the blind. More than 10 years ago when she said she wanted to go with.

Now she likes to sit by herself more and more.



I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately...

We had a nice buck come out at last light. He was real borderline (antler restriction county and age) but I think he needed another year. The little hunter did awesome overall and she had a blast! She watched the deer walk through and graze some before he walked off. I believe she might be a stone cold killer in the future. She put her ear protection on in preparation for the shot and whispered “Ok Daddy, 3, 2, 1, shoot!”

I couldn’t be happier.

It was a slow couple of sits compared to the other lease. But it was well worth it. My daughter had a great time and is ready to go back. This summer we will get her tuned up for her first hunt where she’s shooting. This will be a weekend I won’t soon forget.
