    .... and it's a 140 class 10 pointer!!!

    Every summer, I and about 10 or so friends of mine, have 3-D archery shoots. We have a course set up in the woods behind a friend's house, and there are 20 differant 3-D archery targets, that we shoot at from varying positions and ranges (laser range finders are verboten!). A friend's son, Jake, has been shooting with us since he was 8 yrs old. We've all been encouraging him and coaching him... especially his dad, who is probably the best shot with a bow amongst us. The kid has soaked it all in.

    Jake is now 12, just completed his hunter safety course (which in his case, was just a technicallity to get his license) and this is his 1st season of deer hunting. Last Saturday evening, Jake and his dad were in a 2-man "buddy stand", and Jake took an awesome 10 point buck, with an 18 yard shot. He's the "talk of the town", and he has 10 very proud "surrogate fathers". :):):)

    I'll add a picture to this post, when I get one. I've seen the deer, and the taxidermist (who is an official Pope & young scorer) has green-scored it at 142. Not too shabby for a kid's 1st deer... but knowing Jake and his dad, not that big of a surprise either.

    Congrats to that little hunter!
    I'm truly happy for him.... it is really a blessing to see a kid hunting, bow or gun, and to see his face when he gets his first game!

    Keep it up!
    Take a kid hunting!
