My five year old was with my buddy and I when he filled his cow tag in August. He shot her on the 21st. The big man took a little convincing she wasn't going to get back up, but eventually got real interested in the anatomy of the old gal. He was particularly impressed with the volume of blood. I have never answered so many questions while butchering an animal and it was hot and buggy. I really enjoyed having him with us though. He caught his first solo silver that morning also.
