Cooper's 1st Trophy Buck

Sorry if you are not a hunter. I live with some avid ones. =)

The five of us headed to the deer lease on Friday morning. It was a good weekend to go--weather was perfect and the camp was full of lots of friends (missed you Wuests and Jaclyn). Anyway, on the hunt that very evening, Cooper spotted a buck. Cody gave him the okay to shoot it and he made a great shot! The buck was down and Cooper was happy!! I loved the way he ran to me when they got back from camp and he was so excited to show me his "trophy". All of us gathered around to hear him tell his story. I wish you could hear how all of these amazing family men congratulated him and asked him the important questions. They were so genuinely thrilled for him! We are blessed with a fabulous group of friends and lucky to share a lease with them! Anyway, Cooper beamed from ear to ear. Probably the happiest hunter I've ever seen!!!! Proud of my Coops!!!!!

Carson shot a big ol' hog that hunt too so we got to check it out. Everyone was pretty pumped about this too! Good job Carson!!!!

If you know me well, you know I am not a big deer lease girl. I go because I love my boys and want to be sure and spend some time with them there. Anyway, this weekend, my boys(especially Colton) told me over and over how happy they were to have me there. Colton even said he likes the deer lease more when I am there. SO sweet and happy to hear that. I reached a little turning point at the lease this time and really enjoyed it. Good thing because I am pretty sure I will be going there more and more as Carter gets older! =) 

When we got home, my Dad and Cody's Dad were eager to come check out Cooper's buck. Cooper was excited to show his grandpa's his trophy.

That is a nice deer! Congrats to Cooper! Do you all camp out when you go there? If so, I can understand the reluctance to go. LOL

Oh wow! Now that is an awesome 1st buck! Congrats to your little hunter! I can just imagine how much it meant to him to have all the family men asking him questions and showing genuine interest. Love that support! :)
