Last week my wife tagged her first antelope on a Wyoming hunt. She had a great time and I think hunting will agree with her.
We had a small problem at approx 80 yards when the little huntress was in a good position but the safety was in the wrong position. squuuueeeeeeezzzzzzzz the trigger as the buck decided to wait no longer. She was so mad at herself! Then she did the most incredible thing. She dropped to one knee (flipped the safety to fire this time) and drilled him at over 150 yards as he was going up the other side of a small canyon. The old model 70 .243 spined him between the shoulders like a bolt of lightning. This is a gal with only 3 practice sessions with a rifle. started with a .22 scoped bolt gun and moved up to the m70.
Just thought I'd share this with you folks. As you can probably tell, I'm more than a little proud.
