Just got a call from Dawson.

If you've followed any of my threads, you've probably seen pictures of Dawson (my friends 12 year old son). Whenever I go to GA to hunt, I sit in the stand with him so his Dad can sit with his little brother.

I hunted with him this past weekend when my daughter, Toni, killed her first buck.

Dawson didn't get to hunt again until this morning.

He just called me as excited as he could be. He said, "Mr. Rusty, I got him!" Then hung up......

He just texted me a pic.

    We've seen him a couple times and Dawson and both my daughters have been hunting him for a couple years. He's very predictable......until they hunt the area he's in. He just seems to know when they leave the stand. Looks like Dawson fooled him this time!

    He's said he'll send me a better pic in a few.

    I agree. This is what it's about. If you don't have a kid of your own, take a friend and his kid hunting.

    Nothing is as much fun a hunting with as kid that is into it.

    That's actually his second buck. He shot a small 8pt last year.
