    First time stalk with my son

    My 9 yr old son has been bugging me for a while now to come hunting and finally I had to say yes. Well we spent most of last night sitting in the caras it was chucking it down and I didn't want him to get cold wet and miserable. So although we blanked last night we watched a fair few although no bucks. I had guessed that this morning was going to be better weather and as we pulled up to one of my persmissions we bumped a fallow buck. Unusual as I have only ever seen 2x on here before. Despite a hurried exit from the car he was gone.
    we continued to stalk and as we crossed a road a Munty was spotted. Once again a hurried stalk into a vantage point and after 5 mins he appeared. Bang ,thump and down. My sons 1st witnessed stalk AND what a buck. I think I saw him last year, just the once and if it is him then this year he is definitely better.
    A good weekend for me and my son.

    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Congratulations, thats acracking buck!
    To be honest, I cant wait to take one of my kids out for the stalk in the woods.....

    By the way:
    What do you think will be the right age to take kids out, and the right age to let them see how an animal is bagged?
    My little ones are already checking the chiller everytime I get home from hunting, so they are used to see dead, bloody bodies, they also know very good about the food chain (the only meat we eat is venison in all kinds prepared (sausages, ham, steaks for BBQ, .....) and they love it!
    People's hobbies are more their measure's than are their jobs.
