Son's First Coon
« on: November 23, 2013, 07:48:53 PM »
I haven't hunted coon or  trapped since I started having kids over 7 years ago. Now my boys are getting to be old enough to enjoy doing the things that I did as a child. It's really something special to pass these things on to our kids. I have 4 kids, 2 boy then 2 girls, and they all love to spend time outdoors. My oldest, John III, killed his first coon recently! He was proud, but not nearly as proud as I was. I've waited for this moment since long before he was born. It was the first animal that he's ever shot. I'm proud to say that he shot it out of the tree with two perfect shots to the head with a .22lr. The next one is Greg's. I gotta tell ya, Greg is really chompin' at the bit! LOL! Anyway, here are some pics of John with his coon.

Very nice . Great job both of you ! This memory will be with you forever . Congratulations . Hope you have many many more successful hunts. It's funny how kids make things we did when we were younger fun again.

Thanks guys! It's really special to pass this on. They love it as much as I do. And yes, we sell the pelts. It'll really help with Christmas this  year. And my wife loves to coon hunt as much as I do. She just can't make it out anymore due to kids, and such. In a year or two, we should be able to take the whole family out. Boy, will that be something... hahaha
