Ian the Hunter!

Ian had an eventful week this past week.  It started with a trip to Columbia with his Webelos Pack for a very cold, very wet camp out.  We should all be proud of Ian.  He set up his tent all by himself, dried it out for sleeping, and threw the tarp over it.  Thanks to his efforts, he and his Grandfather were some of the few that didn't wake up soaked to the bone.

After his camping adventure, he and his Grandfather went to the hunt club for a few days of fellowship, hunting, and learning.  He kept a journal of all he did.  Wrote up an essay of what he learned, and brought home the bacon.  This was Ian's first time "really" hunting and he bagged a 7 pointer as a trophy for his effort.  Here are a few pictures:

Grandpa also took a deer on this trip.  His was a 10 pointer and weighted about 183 lbs.

While Ian enjoyed hunting, I think one of his favorite pass times while at the club was driving the golf cart.

A special shout out goes to David, Rusty and his son, and all the others that made Ian's first hunt something to remember.
