Daughters First Deer!

Not long range to us but, it might be for my daughter, Joelie.

I used several people to help me get the rifle fit right for my 3yr old daughter as soon as she expressed interest in hunting larger game. She has been shooting a custom 22 for a while and said she wanted to shoot a deer.

Well, several months ago I built the rifle and sent it to Shawn Carlock for a muzzle brake. Shawn then helped me work a special 223 load that generates decent velocity with ZERO recoil with is brake!

She has over 500 rds down the tube and I finally got her on a doe. It was only 47 yards but, she made a perfect shot and the doe went 20 yards and piled up. She is shooting a 55gr ballistic tip at 1800fps and it performed flawlessly and exited the doe.

Also for those that ask, she will be 4 in March so she is 3yrs and 9 months old!

Thanks Shawn!!!

I've got three daughters, between 5 and 7, and I'm just starting to teach them shooting. This is fantastic!! Gives me a whole pile of inspiration.

Congratulations to you and Joelie. That is a great pic!

That's the way to do it. Youngest hunter I know of to kill a deer. Awesome!!! God job. Congratulations to that great shooting little hunter.
God bless her!!! OK! CONGratualtions to you too dad and mom.
Good job Shawn, well done as always.

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!

That is fantastic. My daughter is 4 and 5 this coming september and I have just started her on an air rifle but for a little girl at 3 and 9 months to take her first deer - that is a fantastic achievement for both father and daughter. Well done

Glad to be of help on the project. I think that is just outstanding! The only problem I see here is it appears quite obvious that when she is older your going to have to keep a big stick near to run off all of the boys.
