haha Ok T, I feel better. When I looked at the buck you were implying you'd pass on, I was thinking to myself, I'd be hard pressed to let that one walk on by.
Mr. B. Dawg, What your grandfather and I do is what my ex wife used to chide me as "taking my gun for a walk in the woods, again." Used to piss her(ex) off too....which might be why I did it. Freudian thing I suppose.
I think it's great he encourages kids to be out in the woods, hunting or otherwise! Being in a litigation prone state, I encourage parent/child hunting my land, rather than me escorting the new hunter.
haha Unlike in your grandfather's area, there are enough hunters on nearby properties to force the deer population to change their habits and make them very cautious. So, if I pass any deer on the 1st 3 days, I don't get one. Which is usually the case.
