My son was selected for a life lock hunt through Buckmasters. A land owner in Camden has graciously offered his land for a chance for my son to bag his first, I am stoked!

Im going. I saw some really nice deer bow hunting, they just stayed out of range for me to shoot. One of those deer was the biggest 10 point I have ever seen. He just stayed about 80 yards from me.:banghead

I'll be there in Butler Co. with my 2 sons, 9 and 7, and they can't wait, we've been successful the last two years on the youth weekend, and hopefully it continues for their sake.

Good Luck to all of you. I sure miss the youth hunts now that my daughter has "outgrown" the age limit. I was wonder if any of you know the answer to this? I know the WMA's are strictly "Youth Only" for Saturday...and that it is also State Wide, "youth hunt" weekend...so what about National Forest lands..can we still Bow Hunt this weekend? I can't find it "spelled" out in the regs?

LABDOG3 (11/10/2008)Good Luck to all of you. I sure miss the youth hunts now that my daughter has "outgrown" the age limit. I was wonder if any of you know the answer to this?

The AL youth hunt is 'state-wide' on all lands...that means WMA's, Nat'l Forest Land (where hunting is permitted), private land, leased land, etc. An AL licensed adult MUST accompany a youth 15 years or younger on the hunt. 1 gun is permitted between these 2 hunters. Taking a youngsteris the only legal way you're getting in the woods early with a gun.

And, YES, you can definitely still Bow Hunt this weekend...I bet I'll beat you out therewith my bow. Good Luck!

The <?XML:NAMESPACE PREFIX = ST1 /><ST1:STATE w:st="on"><ST1:pLACE w:st="on">Alabama</ST1:pLACE></ST1:STATE> youth deer hunt is a very good event to achieve that quality time. The 2008 youth deer hunt will be held November 15-16. It is open to any youth 15 years old or younger that is accompanied by a properly-licensed, non-hunting adult 25 years of age or older. Each properly-licensed adult can only carry one youth hunter and one gun between the two of them. The focus on this hunt is not just about youth bagging a white-tailed deer, but that they are empowered with knowledge, ethics and respect for the outdoors along with the making of memories that will last a lifetime.<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-INDENT: 0.25in; LINE-HEIGHT: 150%">During the special youth deer hunt, the supervising adults must stay with-in arms reach of the youth. This allows for a safe hunt and provides opportunity for teaching the youth about hunter safety, gun handling, rules and regulations, and when to shoot or not to shoot. This experience is very important and can provide the basis for an individual?s personal conservation ethic. <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-INDENT: 0.25in; LINE-HEIGHT: 150%">A majority of <ST1:STATE w:st="on"><ST1:pLACE w:st="on">Alabama</ST1:pLACE></ST1:STATE>?s seasoned hunters follow a code of ethics while hunting. This special hunt provides opportunity for the supervising adults to teach the youth this code of ethics. The ethics include patience; appropriate hunting methods, and proper field care of game. All of these are important for the enjoyment of the hunt. However, the most important is to help the youngsters understand the relationship of all parts of our natural world and an appreciation for our many natural resources. This will help them on their way to being a true conservationist.<O:p></O:p><P class=MsoBodyTextIndent style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><ST1:STATE w:st="on"><ST1:pLACE w:st="on"> Alabama</ST1:pLACE></ST1:STATE>?s youth deer hunt is not all about bagging the youth?s first deer or the opportunity for hands on teaching. It is also about making memories. Whether you are successful or not you will cherish the time spent together in the field talking about the things that happen in your normal day-to-day routine. I can still remember the time spent with my father and a neighborhood mentor when I participated in <ST1:STATE w:st="on"><ST1:pLACE w:st="on">Alabama</ST1:pLACE></ST1:STATE>?s youth hunts and I still cherish them. We were not successful all the time and neither will you. However, when you are successful and you hear the words ?I got my first deer?, and see the look on his or her face, the memory will last forever.<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-INDENT: 0.25in; LINE-HEIGHT: 150%">If you don?t have a child and wish to participate in this hunt, just check with friends, extended family, or in your neighborhood because there are youth that could use a hunting mentor in their life. Take advantage of <ST1:STATE w:st="on"><ST1:pLACE w:st="on">Alabama</ST1:pLACE></ST1:STATE>'s youth deer hunt and make a memory.<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-INDENT: 0.25in; LINE-HEIGHT: 150%">For more information concerning <ST1:STATE w:st="on"><ST1:pLACE w:st="on">Alabama</ST1:pLACE></ST1:STATE>?s youth deer hunt, contact your local Wildlife and Freshwater fisheries office or call 334-242-3469.

My 11 year old doesn't know it yet but he'll be out there with his brand new H&R single shot.25-06 (Early Christmas Present)! He didn't think he'd be hunting until he was 12 so this will be quite the surprise when I get home tonight, I can't wait to see the look on his face! We'll be hunting in northern Conecuh county. Good luck everyone, hopefully we'll all have some nice pictures to post after this weekend!

Well unfortunately we didn't see any deer while on stand, I was really surprised. Deer Cam pics confirm though that most of the deer movement is still at night sonot a complete surprise. We did see turkeys, squirrels, and an armadillo. He told me he had a blast even though we didn't get to shoot a deer. I can tell he's hooked!

Well, we made it to the camp on Sat pm. Very windy and saw four turkeys. No deer. Sunday morning was calm and cold. Sat on a gas line. About 7:20am we saw three does and two fawns, he wanted to shoot one but they were at least 350 yards, we past on that shot and just watched. No more deer for the morning. Went back in the pm, sat a great looking plot. About 4:40 pm a doe comes in and starts feeding. My son wanted to shoot and not wait to see if anything else shows up. So I help him get his gun ready. One shot at about 50 yards and he is three for three on the past three years on youth weekend. No horns this weekend, but he is happy with the doe and to shoot his gun. This is his second deer since he got his TC 7mm-08. He loves it. Jaden is 9yrs old and has hunted with me since he was 4. This is the sixth deer he has killled. He loves hunting and fishing and I love to take him and spend time with him. Hope everyone else had a great weekend.<DIV align=center></DIV><DIV align=center></DIV><DIV align=center></DIV><DIV align=center><img src="http://www.forumpictureprocessor.com/pictureprocessor/images/108_3899.jpg"></DIV><DIV align=center></DIV>
