The kids had a long weekend break from school. Erik @gizmo & I had been eyeballing this weekend for a good while, with fingers crossed that with all that’s going on in the world, that I could get my daughter back out to the Rockin G Ranch. Fortunately, no bogeys.... so we were able to head out west. This is typically a shoulder month in Texas.... weather is historically beautiful... sunny pleasant afternoons & cool calm mornings. Well as luck would have it, it was 100 degrees days with 40 mph wind. Not the exact recipe for a successful hunt. Nevertheless, we had a great time as always. Lots of fun & laughs. My daughter was able to connect with her crossbow on a couple of management does. We got to spend a lot of time glassing. Her wish/hit list is growing every time we go out there! Here are some pictures from the weekend. I hope y’all enjoy!

Take care & keep safe y’all!

Yessir.....they are growing up fast! I know that I won’t always have this opportunity, so as long as she’s got the interest & desire, then I’m taking her!

Does she hunt with a rifle too?
She doesn’t look that big can she draw a crossbow easily?
We can’t have crossbows in Australia and I like my rifles anyway so just curious.

Yessir she hunts with my rifles, she has also has a 20 gauge shotgun that is designed for smaller shooters. The crossbow is pretty much just like shooting a firearm, once it’s drawn/cocked.... there’s a rope device that assist along with me, with that.

Teachers, LEO, Military & First responders are our hero’s..... I know that our time is precious, soon it will be high school & college activities. I figure I have to stack days like this like cord wood while I can!

It was so good to see you both. Absolutely love having her at the ranch. I know you don’t need me to tell you, but I really appreciate getting to watch that sweet girl grow up with her Dad investing time and energy to get her outside and enjoying what we are all passionate about. Young people like her are why we do what we do. As a community here on AH, I believe we do that as well as any group of outdoorsmen/women in the world. I’ve been blessed to see so many kids go on their first hunt and experience the sense of awe and wonder that we all feel at seeing how great this world is when you put down your phone and look around. I love being a small part of the process that it takes to get our kids fired up to be hunters. Best part of my job. So from me personally and from all of us at the Rockin G, THANK YOU AH
