    Outstanding Robbie. I've been blessed to experience the same thing three times over and like you said, there's nothing better!

    Congrats to Cash! Did the same thing in NE with my son at 10. Both my son and daughter are hunters, but unfortunately at 17 and 15 they have almost given it up. Hoping they get interested later in life again before I am too old to climb the mountain.

    I don't nor will have kids of my own. I have a nephew who has lived for hunting since his dad first took him when he was 5 or so. When he turned 10 I started putting him in for AZ. He sent me pics of his first WI whitetail and I kept telling him as long as he did good in school I would put him in for AZ. Well after 3 years he drew a Thanksgiving week mule deer tag and is on his way soon for his first mule deer hunt. I am so excited. I can only imagine how you must feel seeing your son accomplish his first successful hunt.

    KHNC- there's a lot better chance they'll return to hunting than if you'd never taken the time to teach them...

    MF- that sounds like a great hunt for him. Good on you and let us know hot it goes, buck or not. Lot's to be learned.

    I learned with my son, half-day hunts are best for him right now. By the time I roll him out of bed at 5:30, hike and hunt till 10:30, that's a pretty long day for a little guy. Let him rest for afternoon/evening, play like 10 year olds do, and he was fired up to go the next day.

    Congratulations to Cash and Dad ! Very cool that he used his grandfathers model 99 Savage to get it done.

    I somehow missed this one. Congratulations to Cash & Robby!!!!

    Last year I & my oldest went down this same path. I get it Dad; no words can do it justice. It is some kind of blessed endeavor we get to experience; being fathers.

    I didn't see this until now. Great job!
    I don't own one, but I hear a 6.5 Creedmoor will do everything but pack out the animal for you

    I love stories like this. Especially when they involve a savage 99
