First squirrel hunt that I can remember was by Big Sandy, TN when I when I was 8. I went on other trips as a tag-along with my dad, but I didn't carry a weapon and couldn't tell you where.

I used a single-shot .410 and killed 6 squirrels on my first trip in about 45 minutes. I thought "this must be the most fun thing in the world - it's so easy!". I haven't had a trip with such a high rate of kill ever since, LOL.

First deer trip was on a friend's farm in Benton County. It was bitter cold on the youth hunt, and I was wearing so many clothes I could barely walk properly. Dad bought me an insulated cushion to sit on beneath a tree on the side of a ridge. I couldn't bend my knees because of all the clothes, so I plopped down from a standing position. The seat exploded, and blew about 10,000 tiny styrofoam balls all over the side of the hill.

We didn't see any deer during the hunt (surprise!) until we got back to the truck, and one was running past the hood of the truck as well walked back. Deer were mythical creatures to me back then, and it was exciting to know that there were at least deer on the farm where we were hunting.
I'm hungry and tired. Don't poke my belly.

Lewis county in 1966. I saw two does and I freaked out! Back then just seeing some tracks made the day and if you killed a buck (buck only back then) you were a local celebrity no matter how large the antlers were.

Squirrel was my first hunt, with many more to follow through my early teen years. This was in Jefferson County near the Bush Bean Plant.

My first deer hunt was on the 5th day of Muzzleloader (it was buck only) and on private property in Jefferson Co. 4 does crossed a saddle (I had no idea what a saddle was then) and I searched and searched, trying to visualize antlers on one of their heads. \:\)

I remember it well. I have been hooked ever since.
