    My son is almost 16. A couple of years ago we started pheasant hunting together. We don't go often, only once a year. Along with that we also don't have a bird dog, so there are not allot of opportunities to get a good shot. Well this year he finally got his first bird with his 20 guage. It was a great shot the bird was flying from right to left about 20 to 25 yards out. He dropped it dead as a dime. Need less to say I was thrilled, and so was he. The following day he got his second.

    Congrats to you both, I was alone when I killed my first rooster, it would have been great if my dad had been able to be there and see it. Good job, dad.
