First whitetail!

Well my 10 year old nephew finally got the job done! We've been hunting hard in tough weather conditions but a nice doe finally messed up. I don't know who had the shakes worse, him or me! He is using a cva wolf with 2 shockys gold pellets and a 245 gr shockwave. The best part is he dropped her in her tracks from 50 yards. Needless to say we have another BP addict on our hands. If I can figure out how to make my pic files smaller i will post some.

If you hunt long enough, you may loose track of how much game you have taken, but just like a kiss, you never forget the very first one.

Great to see someone else taking the time to carry on tradition. You have made a buddy for life.

Thank you guys, it means a lot. He has what I call an absentee father so I took him under my wing. It's been more fun than hunting by myself. It can also test your patience at times but I want him to have a great experience. He's pretty proud to have a deer hanging where he's seen so many of ours. I only wish I had a video camera in the blind that night, it was pretty cool!
