I took my twins out Saturday morning. I decided I was going to let the oldest of the two try for his first deer. They are 7 years old. They’ve been shooting a crossbow, and .243 lately. I’ve noticed they handled the crossbow much better, and decided to use that. I figured it would be pretty difficult to get a deer with 20 yards with two 7 year olds in the blind. Low and behold we get a spike right at 20 yards. He gets on the bow. I’m in the process of telling him to put the crosshairs on the front part of his shoulder because he was quartering towards us. I couldn’t even get the word shoulder out of my mouth before he pulled the trigger. He made an absolutely perfect shot. The deer didn’t run 40 yards, and fell insight of us. The twins were going nuts, and I was pretty pumped myself. Probably the coolest moment of my hunting career. [Linked Image]

High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Hey, hey, hey!


If you find yourself feeling useless, remember it took 20 years, trillions of dollars, and four presidents to replace the Taliban with the Taliban.

Sometimes the Universe puts you in the same situation again to see if you’re still a dumbass.
