UPDATE: He got his deer last week. Took a nice 1 1/2 year old doe.
Camper4lyfe: Your post comes across as being both condescending and ignorant. It's not an issue of being able to "grasp a concept". The kid is a straight A student and gifted. But I was planning on him using a tripod for stability as it's his first deer and nerves are gauaranteed. It's not so simple as sticking the barrel out of the blind. The tripod, the hole (about 1" in diameter) and the deer have to be lined up. It's easier and more practical to shoot through the "shoot through netting". In any case, the shot was close and the tripod wasn't used. He did a great job.
