    Took the boys 4 miles back Friday evening. scouting the spot that I want to spend 3 nights archery opener. Tons of sign and it should be far enough back that I shouldn't have to much competition and the ones that are back there will be serious.

    Hiked out yesterday am and it got hot way to fast. Glad we brought a lot of Water. Lets just say it was the kind of hike that builds character.

    All in all it was a great time with my to favorite hunting partners. Stoked to make that hike out with a ton of meat on my back in a few months.

    I wanna be your kid!

    It's so good to see families raising GOOD kids. Nothing better than growing up in the out doors away from i phones. Well done.

    Nice! I love seeing pics of kids out in the woods learning and having fun. Wait til you get to be my age and your boys are bigger than you are! (That's a plus, by the way. He carries all the heavy stuff now!) Good luck this season!

    That is awesome. Good job to the boys for manning up on a tough hike.

    Read something a long time ago that said a survey indicated parents rated camping as the number one activity for building family closeness and creating memories. So we took up camping with our two little girls, and looking back I would concur with the other survey respondents. Great to see your report. Hope the three of you nail a trophy there!
