    Shot a doe this PM. Messed with my ballgames having to dress it out. First deer ever with a crossbow! Thanks to @Dutchs for sending me a scope for it. Thanks again!

    Well, I didnt get anything on my last hunt of the year :(. Still had a blast out in the woods though. Got to spend some good time with my pops too. He started taking me huntimg when I was 4 and going hunting with my dad is still every bit as fun now as it was then. Very fortunate to have a dad that took the time to enjoy the outdoors with me.

    You're so right. My dad was to busy working to take me hunting or fishin. I was lucky in that my gramps took the time to teach me. When my wife and I got married she had a son by her first husband. His idea of a sport filled weekend was laying on the couch, reading a newspaper, and watching a ball game on TV. So I got to be the one that got to teach him how to hunt, handle firearms, and fish. I was with him when he killed his first deer. Plus several more after that. We will always have that!
