Thread: From The Mouths Of Babes

    From The Mouths Of Babes

    I had to laugh the other day. I was putting my little 3 year old lad in the car and he noticed I had the cover drawn over the boot area. Curiosity got the better of him and saying, "What under there?" he lifted up the flap and had a look. What he saw was a roe buck's head (just the head) in my carcase tray and he said, "daddy got deer in here". "Yes, daddy shot that yesterday" I said. He paused for a second or two and then said, "looks a bit poorly"
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    I took one of my 5 yr old twin daughters out with me a couple of weeks ago after a phone call from one of my farmers that the deer were in his fodder beet,so off we went and there they were a young buck and doe so shot the buck to keep him happy and then got my daughter to hold his leg up to help me with the gralloch,farmer went and got his kids and let them watch too said they should see things like this ,i agreed and carried on.Funny what sticks in their minds at that age because my daughter spent the next few days telling everybody she came in contact with how she held up the deers leg while daddy cut its willy off,god knows what people must think.

    My son (then 18 months, now 2 1/2) regularly used to watch me butcher roe in the garage. He v quickly made the link to the meat which he loves, he is always proud to grin and say he is eating deer!

    My wife used to tell him a story about daddy going stalking, it morphed into him joining me. One night I took over and later it transpired that my wife did not let him take the shot. His renditions of "squeeeezzzeee the trigger gently" and "bang, thump - STONE DEAD" still bring a big grin on my part! Looking forward tot aking him out, I suspect the key time is when a child can keep quiet when asked to?

    He has a nice skull mount roe head on his wall which he says good night to every night - sweet dreams... He loves nature and has sharp eyes. Be it a big in the grass or a deer in a field, he loves nature.

    Is this normal? I hope he grows up to enjoy rural fun, number 2 turned out to be a girl (arrived on sunday) so I suppose less issue over having to share guns!

    I only got away with buying my rifle by calling it a Christening present for my unborn first child - lucky he turned out to be a boy!
