    Nice Buck. Nice smile.

    I have to ask though, where's that gun pointing now?

    Primed,

    sometimes hard to tell from pictures.

    But it looks like a pump with the action open. I am sure Dads on top of it.

    Still I'm with primed on this one.

    All firearms should be treated as loaded and muzzle always pointed in a safe direction.

    I have read this several times from several different places

    Great job to Dad and son!!Thank you Dad for taking your son hunting! The safety fanatics are on the prowl, action is open and the barrel isn't pointed at the boy, but behind him. Never had an open chamber firearm go off.Don't know of anyone who has. Now all the safety instructors that carry a pistol in a rug or a hard case, I have never seen one of them with a arrow or other marking designating which end the muzzle was pointed to? So lots of times you guys have carried a pistol around not fully aware of which end was the muzzle end? The simple fact is you guys are looking to find fault when there is no chance of harm.

    Your Sons smile is a wide as the rack! Now I know the deer is being mounted...Right? You have your son dressed for the cold just as I did when I took my son on his first hunt 6 years ago.

    Congratulations to you both.

    Congrats to your son! That is what it's all about. Now he's hooked. Welcome him to the fraternity.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Brings back a lot of good memories! My first buck was a whitetail that looked very much like your son's buck. I was thrilled as I'm sure he is. Wish I had the quality clothes that he has - I remeber getting cold most of the time. Good job dad, keep it up these are the good times.
