congrats on a great time with your son, deer is a bonus. I don't know why I gun hunt, same thing every year, I see ton of deer bow hunting and rarely see anything gun hunting, don't get me wrong, I eventually fill the tags but just not as excited as when I bow hunt. I have heard ton of people say same thing, dead weekend. I could not hunt Friday but got to go out Sat. I took a good friend for his 1st time hunting this year. We hunted the farm I normally hunt most of the day and did not see a single deer. I took him to another spot that is good for a doe. He missed at 80yds, he was shooting off his knee. So I put him pretty much inside a bush that he could use a limb for rest on Sunday. Around 4pm he hit a doe at 90yds. shooting muzzle loader. He hit her perfect. The deer jumped up in the air, then went back to grazing and then fell over 10 feet from where it was shot, it was crazy. 2 other does in the field and none of them ran when he shot, I had one needed to take a few more steps but they all went over the the doe that fell over and then started freaking out. I will have to get a little more serious next season. You mentioned your son needs to settle down a little, my friend is 42 and he was moving around, breaking limbs, I had to laugh.
