I don't have any clue how many youth deer tags are purchased every year but the locker I work at seems to get a good number of deer. So say there is five thousand purchased a couple of those kids are probably going to get a crack off at a trophy buck. I think at that age it is the parents duty to help them as much as they can, show them the ropes, not just kick them out the door and say good luck bring home the dinner. Think about it the kids only 9, more power to him. Congrats to the boy and the father that just hooked him for life.
