    Several of you know me and my 2 sons and that we are all three avid deer hunters. My boys have been carrying a rifle (with my close supervision!!) since they were 6 yrs old. Both killed their first deer at age 7.

    Here are some photos of Colby(aka as Son of Yard full o' rocks on BYC), my then 10 year old (he turned 11 middle of Nov) with a really nice 8 point buck he killed one morning while sitting with me. Just a proud papa comment....the deer NEVER took a step!!

    Here's a few of him, looking proud




    Here he is "supervising" so nobody damages the rack!!


    Driving off with his "I'm da man" grin....


    My 14 year old was a little jealous that morning as his little brother has now killed one as big as his biggest.

    Had to share...Merry Christmas
