Well, its time for me to put up the deer rifles for this year. Really had an enjoyable one. 11 year old daughter got a small buck and a doe. This was her first hunting season.
We started shooting together when she was 6. Pellet gun and then 22. 2 years ago I bought her a 22 of her own. Savage 64. Early last year I started her shooting a 25-06. It is the rifle that she used this season to hunt with.
I have treasured every weekend out with her. Such a joy to be around. Proud of her too. Both were taken with standing shots and through the boiler room. Both deer dropped and never got up, which is a good thing for me because I am not getting around as well as I used to.
For Christmas I gave her the rifle, amongst other things of course, because she likes it so well. So now she is the owner of my favorite custom rifle. I can't think of a better place for it to go.
I'm really looking forward to next year. In the meantime, I will start he on the 20 ga. so we can do a little wing shooting when the time comes.
No such thing as a stupid question. What is stupid is not asking it.
