Remington 870 .410 using 3” #6 steel shot. He turns 7 in Sept. He also helped skin and clean deer during deer processing last year. He earns $5 a deer. His math skills are just as sharp as his right eye.

Sounds like my kind of guy. Math is what I teach.

Congratulations to your grandson. Great smile! He is way ahead of me.
I have been out twice, between deluges of rain, and have only got two ticks on me.

Eric,
Reminds me of when I was 7. Harvested my first deer in what would be now the 50 yard line at the Giants Meadowlands Stadium.

Of course this was way long before the Meadowlands were even thought of being built.

Used a 12 ga Iver Johnson single shot with a 36" bbl and buck shot.

Wayne

Hunting is for all ages. My grandson Ethan was happy about being able to feed my daughter dinner Sat. Night on him. I was blessed with an outstanding son in law that was by Ethan’s side the whole time he hunted his first Turkey. Ethan can help skin deer but he is still Not hunting deer this coming season. I was 12 my first year. Froze in the Pine forests of Fort Bragg. So, Wayne at 7 you still hold any record I know of. The first deer I killed was at 16 with a 1968 T-Bird. 460 rocket.

Eric,
Hmmm,1968 T-Bird is a pretty big gun!!!

Each year I would have to dispatch about 100+ deer that were injured by cars.

If they were not badly mangled,we had a person who processed the deer in his garage and bag them for Hunters for the Hungry.

This way,good protein does not go to waste.

Glad to see that your fine family properly utilizes that fine game!!

Wayne

That was quite a wonderful experience for such a fine looking young man. I wonder who is the most proud the young hunter or Dad or Granddad. Everyone should be proud. I never took an interest in Turkey hunting although I did kill one early in my hunting life. I always enjoyed watching them. They are soo smart good thing they can't smell or they may never be killed by us hunters. I have an older hen that comes to my deer watering bucket and steeps over in the bucket to wash and cool her feet and legs. I have 4 big gobblers that stay around the house and many hens. When I take my dog out for a walk he is a coon hound and he just goes wild. The turkeys look to see if he is on a leash and go back to eating or taking a dust bath. When I come out to leave in my truck they hardly look up
