    Cool A father needs to gloat!.

    My son Gabriel just passed Hunters education and safety!. My wife and I took him to Cabela's last week and had him hold a Remington Youth Model .243 rifle and scope combo. Then told him when he passed the class he will get one of these. It worked!. He wanted to bow hunt like Daddy but he cannot safely pull and hold the minimum 40 pounds required in Washington. We are working on that part for next year. I have my eye's on a Savage Axis Youth model rifle. I'll buy a Vortex Scope for it, I hear great things about Vortex optics.

    very nice, that's awesome. Hoping my daughter will get serious about it soon as well. Good luck to both of you this year! I know that some of my fondest memories are of hunting with my dad, I wish you both the best.

    Thank you all. I've had him out with me while I was scouting and hunting. I've also taken him out with me while recovering my deer. I gave him tips on tracking. I usually take him to the spot where I was standing then point in the direction and give him a yardage on where the deer was when I shot it and tell him to find my deer. LOL. He's gotten better every year. Spotting blood on different types of surfaces including vegetation, Tracking prints, more importantly...knowing when to back out and not push a wounded critter. Little Double S is doing well. I'm hoping to have him out this fall for Youth rifle. He is 11.

    One thing I never done was push him to hunt. He's been with me since he was 7 while I help assist teach hunters ed to other youths and adults new hunters. He practically has the book and all instructional video's memorized. He decided that he was ready to take the test. Maybe putting the rifle in his hands while at Cabelas triggered it. LOL
