I shot this ten point the Wednesday evening before Thanksgiving on a highline stand we have on some family property just north of Lake Claiborne. He came out about 15 minutes after some does during the Rut at 160yards. I saw him with his head down and a big fork on his left side. I threw up my gun and just happen to have the cross hairs right where I wanted them. I made the mistake of looking at the rack one more time as he turn his head to look my way where the does were. I saw he was outside the ears and squeezed the trigger. I waited as long as I could stand it which wasn't long. I ran down there and found some blood, lung blood and trailed him into the woods about 50 yards and there he was.
I need a little help. My 13 yr old nephew want to go duck hunting. Now he doesnt have the hunter safety course yet but plans on getting it soon.
Can he come hunting with me and shoot ducks? Would the limit still be MY six ducks? Are the youth require by a curtain age to have the hunters safety course?
Any Help is appreciated. i want him to be about to experience it correctly.

My little Cuz has Done it again for the Second Year in a row. Last year a beautiful 9pt. And now This awesome 8pt. Was shot on some family property south of Ruston yesturday morning with the Temperature in the Teens. He wasn't going to hunt but decided it was a good day and man was he right!! 40yr shot in the spine and one in the neck to seal the deal. This guy puts alot of time and effort throughout the year getting the areas we hunt ready for the season. This was well deserved for you CARL, Congrats again!!!!!
