High five to Layton!

High five to Layton! He has been out in these woods for weeks scouting and practicing with his bow waiting for opening season of deer. He got up at 4AM on Saturday with Neighbor Dave and they hit the mountain. The story is told by Dave that once Layton realized that he shot his first 2 point he was so full of adrenaline and excitement he hugged and hugged Dave, jumped up and down, jumped up and down, and then instant texting the rest of us! He’s been anticipating this moment and it was all that he thought it would be. So much so, that he cleaned it all by himself, cut it up, and packaged it, and in the freezer it is. I think he’s pretty proud of the fact he provided for the family and of course the fact that he aimed and hit.
Layton and his first kill!

Friend Dave and Layton !

Casey Martinez - Congrats to your son! I know that my hubs is an avid bass fisherman (catch and release though..I’m not to fond of eating bass, lol) and every catch for him is like winning the super bowl as he puts it! lol. I can only imagine how elated your son must have been though I’ll admit I’m a bit soft in the hunting department I do eat meat so I can’t say anything. lol:)

Karen & Gerard Zemek - Poor deer. Glad you are eating it though and not just killing for sport.
