How do you get videos from youtube to this site? I was told months ago, but forget.

I talked about this hunt on another thread. But for those seeing this for the first time I will put some info in about the hunt.

My boy is 5 years old, turning 6 in January. He was shooting my 7mm RUM with 180 bergers. The gun is muzzle breaked, and has little recoil to begin with. But I had the rifle laying in a bull bag with a strap wrapped around the bag and then around the butt of the stock. The bull bag was on a DOA tactical bench and we had a doghouse blind over top of us. I videod the hunt through my vortex spotting scope using my "tinesup" scopecam adapter. And I also have a little handheld canon camcorder that I used. The shot distance was 160 yds. It does not look that far through the spotting scope, but can assure you that was the distance. My son normally shoots a 22-250. But because of the windy weather forecast, and the potential shot distance we had. I decided to go with the RUM.
It was a great day. And a special "Thank you" to Todd for allowing me to bring my boy to his farm.
