I remember seeing the pic of young Tim somewhere before. I also remember seeing the pride in OLD Tim's face. Great stuff.

This is a pic of my Dad's first trad kill. This is very special to me because although my old man is a great hunter, he just doesn't seem to connect much. And when he does, no one is around to take a picture. I happened to get to watch the whole shot and everything unfold on this one. It is the only kill pic that me and my Dad are in. It's a very special pic. Thanks to my hero, my old man, who always put me first and took me hunting every chance he got

Great idea for a thread TJ! Really love all the posts. Fun to see how many special trophies are does and small bucks. In a day and age increasingly overwhelmed by P&Y scores it is nice to see a bunch of like minded folks who appreciate the experieence regardless of any measurements!
This is a picture of my dad and I on the last hunt we ever went on together. Dad has been gone a little more than 2 years now. Dad taught me how to hunt and encouraged me but was never a bowhunter. This hunt was actually a rifle antelope hunt but I had an archery deer tag so I brought my bow along. I spotted this forkhorn mulie crossing the road ahead of us and stopped the pickup to see what he would do. He eventually got into a crick bottom about a half mile away and bedded down. I pulled the pickup over, gave my dad my bigger set of binos so he could watch and set off on the stalk. It ended up taking me a goood 45 minutes to an hour to close to 20 yards from the buck. I had no shot because he was bedded in some tall fireweed that obstructed his vitals plus he was quartering to me. I finally decided to push the envelope. I got all the way in to 5 yards when he jumped up to leave and I shot him at a whopping distance of 3 yards as he was attempting to escape! The deer went about 60 yards and expired. My dad got to see the whole thing through the binos! What a great experience and it gave him a chance to see what it was that I really love about bowhunting. This is a collage that a friend of mine made for me showing all of the pictures from that hunt. I gave this collage to my dad that Christmas. There wasn't a dry eye around the Christmas tree. I love to look at these pictures and remember all the good times we had hunting.
-------------------- To me, the ultimate challenge in bowhunting is not how far away you can succesfully make a killing shot but rather how close you can get to the animal before shooting. Posts: 1476 | From: Yankton, SD | Registered: Mar 2003
