I have 4 kids. The oldest is 12 and she has been going with me since she could walk. She has been very outdoorsy her whole life.

My 2nd daughter loves the outdoors but she hasn’t been ready to leave Mom until recently. 99.9% of the time, we stay together as a family on our adventures, but I personally think it is important for parents to make sure each child gets high quality 1 on 1 solo time with their parents once in a while as well.

My 9 year old asked a few months ago if she could go hunting with me and I told her my Utah buck hunt this year would just be us.

The story is too long to properly share and I’d never be able to convey what it truly meant for both of us. I’m just going to leave a couple pics here and let them do the talking. Hopefully.

I used my TC . 54 Hawken, 100 gr. Swiss 2f, 450 gr self cast Lyman Plains bullet.

We hunted right from camp and saw 12 bucks on our first hunt. We got to 80 yards from this guy and his buddy. I only had a neck shot but I was solid and knew I could make it. We are cutting him up for the freezer today.

Beautiful. Thank you for sharing. This makes me look forward even more to sharing these kinds of moments with my daughter when she gets old enough.

Also, she's got a really solid serious Hunter face in the picture of her holding your Hawken. 👍

Outstanding! I never had a daughter but have a granddaughter city girl that spent a lot of time with us out in the country when she was young and growing up. She didn't want to kill anything but loved to eat wild game, even helped me skin deer, I taught her to cook, can food, garden and do just about anything in my shop from turning stuff on a lathe to welding.

She is 26 now, living in Nasville and doing well, but is still proud of everything she learned from her "Paw Paw".

Whenever I see pictures like yours, I wonder who is the luckiest, you for having such a special daughter, or her for having such a great dad.
