Mary Pat's First Deer at 7 YO w/ DCGS 6x47 Lapua

I just wanted to post some fun pics of a recent hunting trip with my 4 children. My 7 year old daughter, Mary Pat, shot her first deer at 291 yards (heart shot!) with my 6x47 Lapua built by Dan Glover of Dan's Custom Gun Service. Her 4 year old brother was in the stand w/ his .22 Cricket. Her 12 year old sister was in another stand with her friend and Dan Glover was guiding. Finally, her 14 year old brother and his friend were in yet another stand experiencing the pitfalls of Dad making him take the Leica 1600 rather than the PLRF 10!
I would like to give Dan a special thanks for all his help with the kids! Oh yeah, and also for building some pretty awesome guns!

Just got a chance to get on the site in the last couple of days. Jett it was a blast seeing the kids learning to love what we already do. It was double special that Mary Pat got a deer. What the rest of you guys didn' see was the big smile on Dad's face. I couldn't tell who was the most excited, Dad or Mary Pat. The only thing that Dad hasn't thought about is how high she set the bar at for her next one. I wish I had an 8 pointer like that for my first deer. Can't wait for next year so we can do it all over again. Dan

I wonder if she ever gets a deer fever? (Like we do when we see a buck coming out of the woods).
