My oldest son Triton is 14. I told him going into gun season that I was going to let him start sitting by himself. Not that I don’t want to be with him. I’ll always want to be there but those ladder stands just ain’t big enough for the both of us anymore. He’s done well. I’m normally about 400 yards away. Went on his own yesterday evening. So it was almost dark this evening. Lost about 10 minutes of light it was cloudy. I normally text him at dark to see if anything is on him. I don’t want to spook anything from stand to get down. I was reaching for my phone and he shoot. He said it dropped in its tracks. Thought it was a 7-8. Good to see ground growth instead of shrinkage. Haha. Nice 10 I’ve had on cam. His biggest to date and by himself.
