My 11yr old son has proven himself to be a safe and competent hunter, so I gave him a little freedom over the weekend. I let him sit the afternoon hunt alone on the next stand over from me. Him hunting by himself created an opening for a hunting partner for myself. My 4 yr old daughter was excited to get to go.

Bonus that my son got his first solo buck!

Great pictures! And I bet your boy is over the moon. That sounds like a complicated outing, but you handled it with aplomb and made incredible memories for the both of them. Your son obviously gets his confidence from you! I always thought keepin' 'em warm was the key, but, obviously, it's having lots of tasty snacks! Extremely well done young man. up

Not sure about the bow as a buck attractant. My wife makes sure there is always a bow. My son is 11.

You did turn those binoculars around for little sis, right?

Adorable.
