To this day I can still remember my dad waking me up to go hunting on opening morning. The smell of spent shells and autumn weather is etched in my mind. Now I have the pleasure of waking up a little boy to come with me.
The shooting was slow but managed to get a very nice speck with the sweet sixteen
Regarding O/U's, IMO, if looking for something to hand over to your new hunting bud there someday; I wouldn't consider anything lower in price point than a Citori. A few White's on GB right now, new in the $1500 range, hard to beat.

Wow. That is awesome. Brings back memories of my first hunt with my dad when I was 7. Later in life, after he passed away, those times we spent afield and the closeness we had were the greatest gift he could have ever given me. Way to go!
Fantastic, so glad you and your son got out together!
I love pics and stories like this. Make the most of these next few years, in High School they have soooo many competing interests that make it difficult to get out with them. My 10yo daughter is now taking over as my hunting buddy
I have to ask, is "the honest pintail" homage to Robert Ruark's "The Old Man and the Boy" where he speaks of the pintail as an honest duck that won't go off and get nasty by eating fish on you?
Yes Sir! One of my favorite books, I just read it to my son this summer and every night after I would read him a chapter I would ask him question about what the old man was teach the boy and he was listening to every word.
