Long Range Hunting with my kids in eastern NC

Our long range hunting here in NC is vastly different from what occurs out west. I just thought I would share some videos we shot last week as my kids and I did a little herd management and freezer filling before the season ended. I am new to videoing so please excuse the quality. Hope you enjoy!

Parker is my 11 year old daughter and John is my 13 year old son.

Len, please feel free to move these to a more appropriate forum if need be.
Thanks,
Jett

Jett, that is pretty remarkable.

Tell me about how you got them involved in hunting and how you went about teaching them.

Re: Long Range Hunting with my kids in eastern NC

I have had the pleasure of hunting with Jett and John on several occcasions and it is a pleasure. This was Parker's first attempt and as you can see it was a success. A lot of credit goes to Jett. He has worked hard on his hunting set ups and his long range shooting. He has is guns dialed in very well and makes sure his kids know how and has the equipment to make a clean one shot kill. You want go any where and meet any more polite and well mannered kids. I met him about 8 yrs ago and the first time I met John he was only mabye 6 or 7 yrs old and even then I was impressed. Guys just remember he can't do it alone. He has to have a certain amount of support from the better half. While he has one or two of them hunting someone has to take care of the rest. One afternoon I was hunting with Jett and the wife was leaving to start running kids to different activies. Jett said she whould be busy till about 9 that night. Just keep getting the kids involved because it is our future. I guess that's enough telling him how great he is. If I keep it up he want be able to get his ear protection on. Dan

Ut OH! I am missing my 13 year old son's video in the original post. Getting a little bit of sibling rivalry, so I will post the missing video here until Len can help me out.
