Re: Kids Shooting Course Advice

UPDATE:
They say the measure of success is in the results..... well we had several of the boys take thier first deer and /or buck this year. Ranges varied from 20 - 385 yards. Four boys had to shoot more than once; three where at running dear and one of those the boy connected with both shots. The forth miss was at an antelope at approx. 425 yards. The young man rushed the shot, saying he was in a poor shooting position. He was able to set up again on the same buck and connected at 385.

But even more importantly I heard more than one story of the boys outshooting dad...

Once I can figure out how to post pictures on here I will show off some of the boys critters.

In early Feb. I will start working on hunting down volenteers and sponsors for this summer.

Pete

Pete, That is great! On of my Daughters 13 year old girl friends on her 4-H team outshot me on the trap range a week or two ago...... she was so proud of herself!!

Thanks again for what you are doing for the kids, and as before, don't hesitate to contact me if there is anything I can do to help.

Rick

Re: Kids Shooting Course Advice

Here is my top shooter with a mighty pretty 155er! This guy racked up two antelope, two deer with a rifle and one with a bow this year. Great job buddy. BTW tell your dad I want to be his son

Re: Kids Shooting Course Advice

These are two of my sons. That is the little guy's first buck shot from the standing supported at 147 yards, double lung hit. I thought he was going to lose his mind he was so excited!!

My oldest with the largest deer he has ever taken. 280 yards, high solder/spine shot. Bang-flop.

They shot then both opening afternoon within 90 minutes of each other. It was an AWESOME day as a father.
