    Watching your kids grow up. Proud and confident in my sons ability. His first hunt with a buddy unsupervised by an adult. The two of them are heading out tonight for the lottery to shoot in the AM.

    Very nice post! Hope they get a few birds. Always tough on your first solo.

    Ha Ha! He didn't even ask for cash. Even figured out dinner and place to crash at one of his friends uncles near by club.

    Being a Dad, I had to ask. Mine cried like a couple of little girls when they started having to pay for shells and gas. Congrats Dad.
