Matt had the boys said up shooting mission craze bows for Matthews. The plan is to try to kill with the bow. But we had four tags. We have some birds close but we need them at 8-10 and standing still.

He makes a great shot after a few attempts at drawing. Oh how I have been there. Ridge was snoring the whole time. Bird goes 20 yards and the other 2 attack it. We have a great show.

This thread reminds me of some of the best decisions that I ever made involving my two sons. When they were that age, I took them bowhunting and I still do. They are now 50 and 52 years old and the memories and bonds that we share are like no other. Congrats to you Hunt Man and I know that you will reap the benefits that I have. Good hunting to you..........Bob

Also, shout out to Beav....thanks for the tip on the bow poundage/broadhead. I think it worked ok:) That was Mason's first bow kill so it was extra special. They both killed the first one on this trip with shotgun cause we just weren't having much luck getting birds in close enough. Once the monkey was off our back they decided to leave the gun in the truck which was cool to see them make the decision on their own. They coulda killed 2 more quicker and easier had they brought it back in the blind after lunch but they wanted to try with their bows. Sure glad they did cause in my experience....that first arrow in an animal can be life changing.

There isn’t a trophy out there that tops what your doing with your boys. The logistics with young kids can be frustrating in the moment if you let them. but the memories are the most valuable thing you can have.

That's fantastic HUNT. My youngest son and I had a good start in MT as well, but my boys are both dang near men now.

Enjoy as much time with them as you can. I spent tons of time with my oldest hunting turkeys, and I'm trying to do the same with my youngest. Life moves on though and my oldest doesn't have as much time as when I controlled his schedule, so I do a lot of reminiscing. Hopefully he'll be able to come back around in years to come.

You'll never regret the time you spend with them.

Great times. My son turns 26 this year.......we started hunting trips together when he was about 6 or 7. When he was in college we used to meet at our hunting property many weekends during the fall and spring seasons. Even though he lives 1000 miles away now we find time for at least one several day hunt every year. It is very rewarding to find that those memories are some of his best and that he still likes to spend time together that way. I'm a lucky man...

I've been purposely saving this thread for when I had the time to really take it in because I knew it would be special. I was not disappointed! This is so awesome Hunt! I can say unquestionably that my daughter and I have such a strong relationship because of all the time we spend together in a turkey blind. I can think of no better way to bond with your kids than chasing turkeys! It's life changing for them and for you! Great job boys! I'm already looking forward to the next one, and looking forward to FINALLY getting my own boy in the blind this spring! Congrats!
