I have two sons, neither of which really care to hunt much, but boy, did my youngest daughter make up for it! I'll never forget taking her deer hunting when she was 14 - her first year hunting here in Utah - (she's 19 now), and close to dusk on opening day we saw a 4 point buck on a side hill not far from the road. Her calmness and practice paid off, and she bagged it! When we went up to see it, I'll never forget what she said to me. She said "it's going to take a long time to wipe the smile off my face." Mine too. That was a proud Dad moment. Two years later, she followed up with a forked horn buck, pretty much in the same general area. I have had many good moments hunting, but this one ranks right up there with the best. Good times and good memories.
