    Most excellent job.
    A very special time for him and for you.
    Very glad that you could share that moment with him.

    Grandpa, Dad and Son

    What a perfect time in one's life to be able to create such a cool memory. My Grandpa passed when I was young and dad and I never really got a chance to experience anything like a quality hunt. We tried but he got to the point where his ability to carouse the woods waned and soon after that, his desire to do much.

    That young man is still beaming...I can see it. I'd like to see Dad and Big Dad's faces. Got a pic? :D

    This is the only pic I had time to get. Got dark fast and we used flashlights and my cell phone to get this one. Had some of it for breakfast this morning!

    This is a great thread Gumpy. I am hoping I have a similar story with my Grandson someday.

    It's something about kids and the outdoors that get to me. I took all my kids hunting and fishing anytime I could get them to go, and the same with my Grandkids! You won't ever forget and neither will they.

    Tell your grandson...CONGRATS. I drug a little doe home last Saturday to dress it so my visiting grandsons cold witness how all the meat in the market gets there as well as instruct. Backfired! The 8yr old refused & 10yr old got sick, turned a funny greyish-green and had to lay down in the house while his head cleared. Yup...his father is a indoors, video, movie, shopping kind of whimp!

    Gumpy...I'm happy for the two of you. It's great your grandson made the shot and stayed the course. This will be the 1st of many more hunt memories to share. Hard to beat the good times like that.

    Spoon...you just turned your grandsons into vegans. LOL

    Sounds like your son-in-law needs a lesson on how food gets on the grocery store shelves.

    I applaud you for the effort.

    LEt 'Em Eat SOY

    Nope...the older one will eat more steak or pork chops that you and I put together at a sitting. It was a good reality check/lesson to learn for him, though! The beef doesn't jump into the packaging by itself.

    I used to turn his mom out with a shotgun and she'd hunt her own squirrels on one ridge or holler while I was on another. Now you gotta almost hold their hands unless you're on your own ground.

    As for their father...one of the reasons my daughter and he parted ways!
