Youth Hunt 2007
Toyland, MS> First of all, the youth hunt was a tremendous success. We ended up with 12 kids that had a great time. Friday night Sarah, Spencer, Erin and I arrived at dark most were already there. We had venison bits wrapped in bacon off the grill that night (tar babies) and sat out at the fire aftrwards and actually did the 'smores. The men drank and talked and finally got the excited kids off to bed.
Saturday morning we spread them out and Spencer and I went to Spike Camp. BLAM! Spencer got the first and only deer of the morning.
Marian and Bob showed up to help with the kids and we had a fun morning telling all about his hunt. That afternoon my cousin Davin Lammey put his son Dean near the creek and he and his other son Matt went to the Indian Mound. Blam! Matt got a deer! Sarah and I almost got one but they slipped away at the last minute.
Mark Larson and his son Allen went with Paul to the North Cornfield and Allen got a deer! Marian and Bob went hog hunting and saw deer but no hogs. In fact, everyone that went at least saw deer so there were plenty of good stories but no one got a picture of Thunderhoof. Even Trent took Erin hunting that afternoon and they saw deer.
Saturday night we told ghost stories and ate wild hog and it was delicious. The kids fell off to sleep early and the adults were not long after. The next morning Burney got a nice doe with his bow and we tracked and lost another one that Matt shot at. We took a group photo, cleaned the camp and everyone headed home with plenty of venison. A great hunt! More photos coming!
