Hello Weatherby Nation. 

I just thought I would share with you some exciting news.  My son (Conner, 12) took his first buck yesterday.  He was hunting all season for a local California buck and Sunday (the last day of the season) he managed to take down a nice fork with his Vanguard Deluxe in .240 Weatherby.  I must admit that seeing the joy in his face surpasses any previous hunting I have ever done.  Here is a link to a picture with Conner, myself and our newly adopted son Kabelo. This buck is the first one taken by the 4th generation of Weatherby's  :) http://instagram.com/p/tOPT0zLryQ/

Very cool, Adam. Congratulations to Conner and to you.

Every first buck is a trophy. I'm sure he'll remember it forever.

Nice going Conner!  That's a nice buck.  Adam, I felt that same experience you did when my daughter shot her first buck last November.  I'm still giddy about that hunt almost a year later!
