a priceless momentContributors to this thread:
I am a hunter first and a bow hunter second. I have been teaching hunter safety for a long time . Yesterday was very special to me. I had the opportunity to interact with two young boys due to the generosity of my good friend ,Doug . Doug had made a couple of kids bows and the two boys wanted to shoot . Before I arrived Doug had put some balloons on a huge Styrofoam target. The boys arrived with their dad a bit late but they were all excited. The older boy was full of confidence . The younger, Charlie wanted a coach. He selected me. I helped him nock an arrow while pleasantly but firmly reviewing safety. The boys shot at the balloons more times than I want to admit. Each hit was a celebration each miss was met with positive feed back. I am excited by the mood of the day Doug and I plan to rifle hunt together on Saturday. I think we have hunted together since 1970 or earlier . I am truly blessed by having an old friend to hunt with and a new generation to teach. My grandchildren plan to join the next balloon shoot.
Nice! Great job and story!
That is great, nothing like helping young kids learn archery!
Good work Greenmountain.. May payback come 10X your way.
Very nice! Thanks for the good vibes.
Great post my . I just signed on to teach hunter Ed myself. Looking forward to it.
Bows and balloons…nothing better for kids
Awesome post! Good for those young boys! Good for you! Good deal, all around.
Yup, used balloons for both my children
Ballons filled with cash for my kids. Sometimes a little, sometimes more.
My son carried the tradition for his graduation party.
