    Well yesterday eve was pretty bummed for a lil boy I know. A buck and doe was missed with grandpas opensighted 30-30. I think dad felt worse about the deal but today I made a visit and told my nephew ge could use my lucky .260 if he went at shot it two times in the bottom. 2 bullseyes and at 4:00 him and dad head up to the area where I saw the nice buck and 9 does this morning . At 5:00 the .260 barks and it's buck down !Just cruising solo but in a bad spot:).19" inside spread Went 20 yards. Very proud of my lil buddy! When I was leaving tonight he ran out and flagged me down to say "Thanks for letting me use that lucky gun"...It almost crushed me when he did:)
