    Kody connected on a youth Tom

    Kody, my 12 year old, is becoming quite the seasoned veteran. He began his quest for his second turkey of his young career this morning and took advantage of the youth season to get it done. My dad (Old Scout) and I set the tent up yesterday evening out behind my house in a woodline...

    Youth Season has went to the dogs...

    Here is a little bit of what I saw/heard this weekend... Within the first hour of daylight on Saturday, I had heard 3 "kids" empty guns at deer. How many kids are capable of emptying a gun efficiently at a deer? I witnessed at least 4-5 truck loads of "kids" setting up to do drives with no...

    Youth hunter scores!

    I had decided last year when I bought my son a Rossi 22/.410 combo that if he was ready I would take him deer hunting this season. When I came home from my 10 day rut trip I took him and the .410 out to do some shooting. I was excited after shooting slugs through that little .410 as he was...

    Youth this weekend?

    Anyone else taking any kids out? I will be taking two of my daughters with me to our cabin. My 15 year old has been hunting with me the last two weekends with a crossbow. She killed her first buck at age 12. I am hoping to get my 12 year old her first this weekend.

    Excited for youth weekend

    I’m looking forward to this weekend. My oldest son and I will be headed to southern Ohio for two days of gun hunting. I haven’t decided exactly what location we will be hunting yet. He seems a little concerned about being up in a tree stand, so we may be in a ground blind or box blind. He...

    youth season success

    I took my sister out this morning after having no luck yesterday. We were running a little late so it was breaking light when we got to our spot. As soon as we stepped out of the truck one gobbled just up the hill. Shortly after it sounded like 4 or 5 more hammered. So we quickly made our way...
