    Default Little "Warriors" get it done

    Super proud of my three sons, all of whom took big game animals this year.

    Oldest Boys (14) first Caribou, taken up 40 mile country. He's not quite done, as he still has a Seward mt. goat tag burning a hole in his pocket.



    The middle boy (11) with his first moose, taken in an anybull area. Fine shot at 130 yards with his Ruger American .308, pushing Barnes TTSX 168 grain. Two steps and down.



    The youngest boy (9) also got into the action, taking a 52 inch bull, however we lost those pictures with a camera malfunction.

    Get your kids out hunting!! I have more fun with them then I've ever had hunting by myself.

    I am working up a .308 load with ttsx 168's now. What powder are you smoking and how much of it? I pressure tested RL15 at 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, and 44 grains with no issues yesterday.

    That is fantastic! My boys are 5 and 7, and I cannot wait to share those experiences with them. Well done to the young hunters!

    I started hunting with my son when he was 2, and about the same for my daughter. I hunted with him again this year, he is now 25. The daughter keeps reminding me all about how she needs a turn. Finish college my dear, then we'll talk.
    Nothing like hunting with your children, regardless of how old they are,

    Thought moose season was done, but I was honored to have been asked to harvest a moose for a potlatch last weekend. Oldest boy took a fine cow moose Sunday morning, will be some good eats. Never really thought about it, but taking apart a cow is much easier, for one the neck is 1/3 the size of a bull.
