I like this post - make me think of traditions/rituals my dad and I have (some of which are annual deer drives). Great work on this series!

great post. i have really been enjoying the series on taking kids hunting. makes me look back on what my dad did with me, and forward to what i want to do with my own kids!


Thanks guys. It was originally written as 45-50 minute presentation. I think I'll just keep publishing little bits of it every few days until I've done the whole thing. At this rate, it will take until spring!

Another great post. I am really loving this whole series and I think it will be a great help to a lot of people.

are you taking suggestions on a nickname for my dear big brother? if so, i would like to be the first to nominate "The Rambler". It fits right? The Rooster, The Captain, The Chief, The Cowboy, The Rambler....

haha, love ya Drew...


This is a great series!

Our tradition is blooding also, but we just apply one finger width to the forehead.

Another tradition of ours is shooting the first Deer on my ranch.

The post I enjoy the most are those with feeling. Great post!

Looking forward to more of the same.


Great post as always Matt. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
