Hunting: The Next Generation

December 8th, 2008

I told you a couple of posts ago about Jacob going hunting, in a tree stand, with my dad. Dad got the videos posted of the aftermath of that hunt. You can see from this first one how excited Jacob was to be out hunting. Fortunately, he didn’t have to wait in the stand very long before this little buck came by. He hasn’t built up a lot of patience yet, but this may be just the ticket for getting him to be willing to stay out in the woods a bit longer.  Here is Jacob recounting the hunt:

Here is Jacob behind the camera, and Papaw telling the story:

Look out Bill Jordan…I think Jacob could be one of the next great camera men to video hunters. He could have the next Realtree Roadtrips!

After the stories were told, the work began. Jacob asked if he could help drag…to which I told him he HAD to help drag. Of course his little sister wanted in on that action as well. They both jumped right in and began tugging on the drag rope:

It is exciting to me to see my kids enjoying hunting so much already. As I said before, I think Jacob will be hooked for life now. Next year (or soon thereafter) I hope to have a rifle he can handle so that he can take his own deer!

Thanks to Papaw for the great videos!
