The Kidlet Is Showing Me How It’s Done

April 16, 2012

Some of us spend a lot of time talking about how much we “ought to be” turkey hunting this season.  Others… well, some others just go get it done!

Here’s my brother’s 5 year-old grandson, Damien, and his North Carolina gobbler from this year… and his first ever.  Look at that boy smile!

So now, of course, the pressure’s on.  Can “Uncle Phillip” get off his butt and get a bird on the ground this season?  Heck, can Uncle Phillip get off his butt and attempt to get a bird on the ground?

Well, I certainly intend to… but the road to hell and all that, right?

Talk is cheap.

There is no try, there is only do.

I get it!  Alright!  No more putting it off.  No excuses about my gun malfunctioning.  I’m gonna do it!  I’m gonna go turkey hunting…

But I don’t think anything I can shoot this year is going to be nearly as rewarding as this bird was to Damien.

Congrats, boy!  You done good!

    I may be your sis in law, and maybe a wee bit biased…..however, I just love the Hog Blog.

    By the way, quite possibly the cutest little hunter I have ever seen on this article. Bias again? Maybe. I just don’t think anyone ever had a grandson as smart, sweet, funny, and handsome as mine. Not one bit biased. 🙂 Thank you for the article.

    May be a little bit of bias there, Denise. But he is absolutely the cutest hunter I’ve featured so far.
