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!

If I have to defend my life, I'd prefer more than "better than nothing" in my hand.
