This past weekend was Youth Deer Hunting Weekend here in Virginia. My amazing 8-year-old dropped her first deer from 70-yards with her Savage Axis XP 243 after patiently waiting with it in her sights for over 2 minutes until she had just the shot she wanted. Then she helped me dress it out and put it in the freezer! Needless to say, I’m one proud papa!
It was cold for Virginia as I woke up before the sun this morning. Went through all of the normal routine getting ready for a day of hunting, except today, by her choice, I had one of my daughters at my side for the first time. It would have been nice to get a buck today (which I did not), but as far as I’m concerned, today was just about perfect!
