This is how my 2006 NH Youth Day hunt went.
My name is Kelsie Courtemanche. I am .14 years old. I am writing you and sending you these pictures to let you know how your Northwoods Scents worked for me. This was my 1st youth day hunt with my dad. We had made a ground blind earlier and we arrived there before sunrise. After putting out our Northwoods Common Scent Doe in Heat, we settled into our blind. It was a very chilly morning and we were very excited be there. My dad facing one runway and me facing another. We started hearing shots in the distance, and it was making me anxious. Around 8:00am, I felt my dad tap my right shoulder. I looked at the runway he was facing, and saw a huge buck standing about 30 yards from us. The large buck stopped broadside and caught a whiff of the Northwoods Doe in Heat. I grabbed my 7mm O8 and got up from my 5 gallon bucket, I headed 3 steps towards the shooting rail we made. I kind of got too excited and stumbled over a root. ( I was excited ), I set my rifle on the rail and placed the cross hairs just behind the bucks front shoulder, and squeezed the trigger. He was gone back to where he came from in a flash. After following the blood trail about 150 yards, I saw my 9 point, 185 pound buck laying dead on the ground! I was pretty excited, considering that my first deer i had ever shot was a good one, but to be honest, my dad was about 5 times more excited than me!! I am youth day hunting this year in New Hampshire again, and we have set up our groundblind in the same location as last year. I am looking forward to another succesful year using Northwoods, and hopefully it will bring me the same luck as it did last year!
