Title: Grandsons 1st hunting trip
Post by: tboxfish on August 28, 2009, 08:27:31 AM
I went to the ranch on the 20th & took my grandson, Gavin with me. 380 miles1 way is a long, long, long, lonnnng way to a 7 yr old. It was his 1st trip to the ranch & his 1st hunting outting. We had a blast. :)

We worked on camera systems the 1st night & did not get to hunt. The next morning a large boar came out to the feeder & was getting a little help from Rocky the Racoon. :knuppel2

I was letting Gavin watch him thru the binoculars & almost let the hog slip off. When I pulled the trigger on my Remington model 700 in .270 The hog let out a loud squeel. Gavin jumped up & hollered "Ya got him Pa-pa" & gave me a HIGH 5.
I haven't seen that much excitement in someone in a long time & I know I have started a new future Hunter. 8) ;D 8) 8)

That evening we watched 16 does & 2 small bucks. We went to the same stand the next morning, as I have been watching a large white boar frequent there, but he did not show up. Gavin was tired from all the activity. :roll:

Couple more years & Pa-pa will get Gavin a 20 guage & start him out on the doves :wink:
Remeber to take a youth hunting or fishing when you get the chance, you will help make a memory that will last a lifetime. CAN YOU REMEMBER YOUR 1ST HUNTING OR FISHING TRIP???? THOUGHT SO - I SURELY DO!!!!
