Granddaughter and I have been shooting all summer with the rifle she uses for deer hunting. Full-sized deer target 150 yards.

CV youth stock 7.69x39 Redfield scope custom ( Short) sticks.
We shot 100 shells over the summer.
Today she shot one more...
188 yards, in the pocket through the heart and out the offside shoulder. It did not take a step, DRT!
It was not to hard a stock but it was the third hunt we put on.
Spotted them at 250, too far for her and the gun. Went west but could not get in under 200 yards, back then to the east.
Cut alfalfa field a few rolling high spots but if we got on our hands and knees apparently they could not see us. We got to 150 and could set up. The buck stood and started to walk away and behind some brush. She held tough and waited for it to come out. He did but at 188 yards. I asked if she was good with that and she thought it was a good shot. I said you're behind the scope if you like it take it.
Very shortly she did Bang, thud, kerplop.
9:38 she was finished for the year.
VERY proud Papa...
One 4x4 with eye guard whitetail last year
One big fat 4x4 mule deer.
What's next?

Like the shooting ,Love the Hunting

Good to see the youngster bringing home the groceries.  Sounds like she earned it.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !



20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon !


If you want to be successful, Be like a postage stamp, Stick to it until you get there



RIP Chris Miller
