My 7 yr old has went out hunting with me a few times over the last few years. This was his first time getting to hunt himself. On the morning of the 17th we went out and a Spike and 4pt came in. I told him to go for the 4 pt. He lined up the shot and bang over the back I seen the arrow go! Deer ran off I look over at him and he was shaking. He said “Dad I’m not scared”. I spent the afternoon explaining to him that it’s easy get excited and that he needs to follow through on his shot and try not to look up and follow his arrow. Well lucky him this 8pt came strolling in about 45min til dark, He lined up his shot, took his time, and harvested his first deer!
