Wednesday night, The Husband took The Boy on his very first hunting trip. Since it is bow season, we felt it was a good opportunity for his first outing.
Thursday morning, The Husband went out on his own and let The Boy sleep in. The Husband saw four or five nice bucks. The big one - an older 10 point was about 15 yards away and staring right at The Husband. Of course, he was ready for him...except for one thing. The buck was staring RIGHT AT HIM and, so The Husband could not move. Had he gone to draw his bow, the buck would have run. They stayed in that stale mate for a good ten minutes before the buck took off.
Thursday evening and Friday morning, The Boy went with The Husband, but they saw nothing. Friday afternoon, They did see some...The Husband saw another nice buck, but he was too far away to get a good shot off.
I know the two of them had a wonderful time together and it was a great bonding experience for them.
As for The Girl and I...well, we caught a movie, ate out, and did some shopping! Although - she did go out back and practice shooting her bow too!
