    Well I'm happy to post that my son's first hunt was a success!! He shot his deer from a nice blind overlooking a bean field. He got this nice 8 point buck. He propped his rossi single shot .243 in the open window and got his crosshairs right behind the shoulder, then i cocked the hammer and he steadied himself and fired. It was a 138 yard shot and he did great! I've never been more proud.

    We went to the range at bush wildlife and practiced at 100 yards a couple of days to get ready. The man who let us hunt his farm told me it would prob be between 60-140 yard shot so we wanted him to be ready. His mother(my ex-wife) went with us and ran the video camera so we got it all on tape. It was a great trip and we are very proud of him!
