Amen to that one Keith. Kids have so-many distractions and conflicting forces at work on them anymore. For the very first time, going was his idea and it made all the difference. He's telling me that some of his friends are interested in hunting as well, so that's likely a component here too. He's also enamored of this little Ruger American and wants to get familiar with it(!). Best Christmas gift he could ever give his old man, besides sprinting over to the downed animal and hustling it back to the truck (he's a big boy). Easiest extraction I've ever participated in.
