Hunt Story

We have continued to hunt hard to try to get some awesome hunts and footage for my youtube hunting channel. We have hunted a lot of different bucks this year. We had two bucks on our list get shot in November. This buck showed up on trail camera a few times sporadically the past few weeks. My 7-year-old son, Charlie, came to sit with me on this evening. We weren't originally planning on hunting, but plans changed and off we went. We saw 3 does at about 4:45, but they left pretty quick. This buck came out at 5:32 and I watched and filmed him for two minutes before I shot. He dropped when I shot, and our celebration began. The footage is incredible. My wife Taylor and 3-year-old son Cal came to take pictures with us. My parents drove out to take the pictures, so it was an awesome family moment. On top of all of that, we got him at our old home place which was the home of my grandparents. We killed this buck on the anniversary of us losing my grandmother 23 years ago. That was a pretty cool thing to top it all off. It has been awesome to get to kill two bucks with my son sitting with me this year.
