I started posting on this site a long time ago. Not many people left here from when I started but some of you have seen my son grow up so I thought I would share.

I started taking josh hunting when he was 4. First hunt I took him on was at Wister. I still remember it. We took 115A-1. Not a hot blind and now I think it might be choked out with Tulies but on this day it was great. My son and I have had some great hunts. Memories that will last a lifetime. Duck hunting is a past time that I shared with my dad and uncle that they shared with there dad and so on. It’s something very special to me. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Saturday we hunted in his last hunt as a junior and we had a blast. He shot his final limit as a junior.

Damn Landon. You almost got me choked up on that one.

My oldest just turned 4. He got to do his first Turkey hunt last year at 3. It was awesome.

I took my son to the youth hunts at San Jac. We had such great times and the crew there really made it special. My son is 21 now and we still get after them together. I cherish those memories the most! Great job!

Thanks for sharing. Nothing better. Not too many sports or hobbies will actually make a dad put together a photo journal of their kid from 4 to 18 and show everybody that he knows and others that share the same passion. Hunting. Hunting with your kids, especially. I'm not sending out photo journals of my daughter playing softball. But, I can tell you I have every photo cataloged by year of every hunt that I have done with my daughters. Hunting is the greatest pastime that you can share with your kids. You are a great dad. Your kid has grown into a studly man. Time flys.

Great pics! I remember making a similar post years ago and feeling a little emotional. Not that we won't be hunting with our kids anymore but paying for adult licences, stamps and area permits sucks LOL.

Great pictures and priceless memories.

Reminds me of days with my dad and now as a dad and grandfather of duck hunters myself

I know that joy you are experiencing and it gets better every year. You are blessed to hunt with him, and he definitely is blessed to have you show him the way.

Well done
