My 7 year old son's first deer.

My 7 year old son used a .223 AR to shoot his first deer this morning.
We used a ground blind and a tri-pod rest.
Two deer showed up, he was paitent and waited for a good shot on the bigger one.
He shot his first deer on his first day of hunting - ever.
The doe was just 15 yards away and went only 20 yards after the shot.
Rifle is a Windham SRC with a Bushnell TRS-25 red-dot.
He used my handload, a 60 gr. Nosler Partition chronographed at 2,807 fps from a 16'' barrel.
The bullet made small entry and exit holes, but did significant damage to both lungs.
Proud Dad & excited son, awesome!

Strive to always carry the gun you would carry on the "bad" side of town.
My carry philosophy is "Something is worth doing is worth doing right" not "Something is better than nothing".
