Great year with the kids! I had a chance at my deer with the bow and couldn't get it done! I was very disappointed not being able to get this buck with a bow, but I knew I had better try to get him with a rifle or somebody else would shoot him out from underneath me. So opening morning i got within 90 yards and we had a 30 minute stare down before I was able to figure out which way he was facing. It was a bitter sweet morning!

Jak (my 14 year old son) made a 318 yard shot on this great Wyoming whitetail. We are sure it is one of the largest bucks ever shot in western Wyoming. We patterned this buck for 9 days before we were able to finally get a shot on him.

Grace (my 12 year old daughter) made a great shot on this muley right at dark! She also had a couple opportunities with her bow but could never connect. This was her first mule deer!

Very proud of both my kids!

Impressive is an understatement. As the parent of a 14 year old son and a 12 year old daughter (Oct. 2nd), you should be absolutely proud of the poise that it would take to shoot these animals. Congratulations to all!!
