    Got out to the woods. Hung 3 lock on stands. Put 2 in some new areas that I think will pay off. just a few yards off some really nice trails. Only saw 1 deer but it was like 11;00. it was quite breezy and leaves were falling, its gonna be hard to wait til the 6th to get out and hunt. Got the cabin cleaned and ready for season but I couldn't get the dang mower to start so I guess we'll have to deal with the somewhat tall grass, cause I ain't mowing after season starts.

    Took my nephew out for his first ever hunt this weekend. He's 14 and a pretty good shot at a target. The weekend was good, had decent weather, fairly cool and cloud cover. Sat. morning I didn't see anything and Andy saw 2. 1 he wasn't sure what it was and the other a little 4pt. Sat. evening I got in the stand at 4 and had a doe down at 4:30. Andy came and helped me drag it out then went back to his stand. Some time later I was at the cabin and opening the door to get a beer out of the cooler and there's Andy, sayin', "I GOT ONE!, I GOT ONE!" So we take some lights and head to the stand where he shot. Well to cut this short we found very little blood. We tried to just cover the area doing sort of a grid type search but came up empty handed. So we decided to wait til light and try again. So day light comes we skip morning hunt this morning and start lookin for his deer. We were so close but with it being dark we just didn't see him. So here is my nephew wit his first deer ever on his first hunt he's ever been on. Its that 4 pt that he had seen that morning.

    That's awesome. I hope you got a couple pics with the both of you in the picture.

    Congrats to the man. A bow kill for him is definitely a day of "coming to age".

    Congrats to the young man. I was 14 when I took my first one. Granted it was not with a bow but it was with a muzzleloader. That was in 1983. Tell him that I am very proud of him. And to you Bang, thank you for taking him with you and showing him the ropes. You should be very proud of yourself. I know the feeling of sitting with my son on his first and second deer. The excitement on his face was worth more that I will ever have. He is only 12 now and I dread the day that he decides that he wants to hunt by himself. The time will come soon enough that he won't even have time for dear ole dad.
    Even though you weren't sitting with him, you took the time to take him not only hunting but also, camping with you. Keep up the good work.
