Cool story about a guy taking his 6 year old daughter out on a hunt. My 7yo has wanted to go turkey hunting for a while now...never thought of the .22 option. I just got her a Daisy 880 pellet gun to start practicing with...

Daugher bags turkey her first time out (http://www.texarkanagazette.com/articles/2006/04/06/local_news/sports/sports15.txt)

Too big to inline, but here's a teaser...

I coached Abby to wait for a shot when they stopped. Over the last month we had drawn turkey pictures and she would show me where she would hold the gun on a turkey as it moved into various positions. The practice paid off as the gobblers finally settled down to our right. We had to move her shooting sticks, and then she was standing on her own and concentrating on the trio of toms.

She waited until one of the toms stopped and she squeezed the trigger...

Lucky girl...I've met many who have hunted for years and haven't gotten one.
