    My son 12yo and daughter almost 11yo are going out to hunt deer tomorrow. :)

    They have their gear bag, backpack and guncases all ready. Daughter is going to camp with Daddy and son is going w/Uncle to hunt at a dairy farm.

    Both shoot .250 's. and reload own bullets for target shooting. If its brown-- its down....either sex deer allowed on youth day :)

    Last night we had a hunting fashion show....Real Tree camo and Blaze orange seem to be in style this season :cool:

    I took then 10 year old Taylor hunting. The first 10 minutes were great. Then she said, "They don't do it this way on tv." The second 10 minutes she was fidgety. "Look at the squirrel! It's cute! Did you see that bird? Where are the deer?" The last 10 minutes she was annoying. I don't know if she's going tomorrow but if she does, it's with her dad!

    I have one who's too old too. She's 22. The youngest is 13 and none in between. Surprise! I'm told they're not hunting tomorrow because it's going to rain.

    Shay decided to hunt outback here in China....Daddy was not happy :nono: but no shots yet....its very windy today but not raining TG.
    She was up and dressed at 5am :angel:
    No word from my son yet w/ Uncle....

    No need to thin the youth herd in Maine....there's more old folks than young ones...and the young ones mostly move away for work. :nono:

    My 10 year old neighbor shot the doe she's been watching for the last three weeks. She was done before 7 a.m.

    A neighbor took his 11 year old granddaughter this morning. She wounded one but they couldn't find it. They were home for lunch when I saw them. Later this afternoon they went by with it in the back of the truck.
