Our "Dedicated" Hunter

This year, Casey drew out to do the "dedicated hunter" program. Being a dedicated hunter means that you can hunt all 3 deer hunts, which is really nice since he's hunted since he was 14 and has only gotten one deer before. We assumed we would be hunting the bow hunt, the muzzle loader, and of course the rifle hunt which lasts until late October. But, we were wrong! Casey was VERY lucky and shot this deer with his on the morning of the opening day! What a wonderful hunter! Guess we won't be hunting for 3 months after all.

Here is our family with the deer. Benson keeps saying it's a "funny deer"

Here's Benson watching the guys skin the deer. It was pretty cold, it even SNOWED a little.
Notice his cousin, Addyson behind him, she was VERY disturbed by the whole thing. She kept wondering if the deer was ok... what a sweet girl!

Still watching. He wasn't very disturbed by it, which is nice because it's hanging in our garage right now.

Casey and his prized 2-point!

Nice deer. It's just a little guy though. I love the video of Benson. He's such a good talker.

Brennen would probably be excited to see a deer gutted. Boys! I am glad my chart idea gave you inspiration after seeing your idea I will have to change my charts to behavior charts now too. Maybe then Brennen would pick up his toys!!

If Casey was dedicated he would have brought home this guy, instead that baby that got lost from his mother.

I never knew Casey hunted. I really didn't. that's pretty cool. Do you have to chop of the head and skin it etc? or do you just cook it? =)

I think you should teach Benson the proper terminology they aren't horns, they are antlers!, Im talking about the Video..
