Any youth season luck?

Anybody have any luck with the youngsters? We saw plenty of turkeys and the young guy I took out took a shot at a young doe, but it was a clean miss.

I think he still had a good time though.

Between my work schedule, and my daughter's soccer schedule we didn't get out this weekend. Next weekend is wide open though, and we'll be out. Weather looks pretty good for next weekend, hopefully it holds.

Took my daughter Sat and Sun evenings. Sat, just one spotted fawn well within range. God put on the best fireworks show I've ever seen. That lightning was worth the drive alone. Sun, one doe decided not to step out of the woods. Then a basket 8, followed by a big old buck with a wonky rack on one side stepped out. My daughter took a shot and clean missed on the big one. Slight donkey kick, but zero blood. If I wasn't taking kids, I wouldn't be hunting in such hot muggy weather. I'm soaking wet by the time that we climb into the stand and it's so uncomfortable to sit still in long sleeves and pants with sweat pouring out of me. Sure do love the excitement of living vicariously through my kids though... Worth it!

Never seen a deer donkey kick that wasn't hit...

Hopfully she gets another crack!

I have actually seen it twice. Both times the shot was right under the animal. One of those was a miss by me. It was only a 30 yard shot and a long story/excuse as to why, but I missed none the less. I was with a guide and we both tracked and looked for blood a long time. We finally went back to the exact spot the animal was standing and I had hit and broken softball size rock right under it. I'm guessing a combo of the impact noise and shrapnel probably hitting its belly made it jump and kick, which had the guide and I convinced it was dead. I did get a nice trophy picture of the broken rock though! :confused:

I've seen it a small number of times, but I agree, it usually means they're hit. My eyes were glued to it when she shot and I didn't see any visible dark dot appear either. The 12 gauge slug usually always makes a visible punch hole when they're shot standing still and broadside. I'm not 100% certain she didn't hit it, but again, we didn't find a drop of blood, and it ran through some thick weeds on the way into the timber. There would have been blood splattered and / or smeared somewhere in there that we would have come across.

Nobody having any luck getting kiddos on deer this year? I've taken kids 3 nights so far, 2 shots fired, and zero deer hit.

Little man cracked a doe. Such a fun experience having him kill his first deer. From the shot to the track job, something ill never forget.
