Alston Washburn took his first deer with a bow last week near Panama. He is a student at Wister and likes to crappie fish and deer hunt. Thatâs my kind of guy. Shooting a deer with a bow and arrow is not an easy feat, and it definitely isnât for everyone. Iâm really proud for him. Good job, Alston!

Youth season opens up today. If you havenât gotten your hunter safety card for your youth, it isnât too late. The Wildlife Department offers an online course. You can set your child up to do it from the comfort of your home. Not only can you get that done at home, you can buy your tags online, too. Donât let the paperwork hold you up. Itâs just a few clicks away.
For this yearâs youth hunt, I am taking Cash and Koby to Clayton where I have some hunting land leased. The father of my buddy Butch Parks, Richard Parks, has a special âhoney holeâ for kids. He says the deer down there need to be thinned out â and Cash is just the one to do it. Cash has never gotten a deer, but he is ready to give it a try again this year. In years past, Cash has flung a few arrows and made a few hits, and hit another one with a shot from a rifle. However, the darn things get away since he wasn't able to hit the vitals. From the way Butch describes it, this could be Cashâs big opportunity to âget âer done!â
Have a great weekend!
