8 year old's first deer

While I was in Wyoming last week my hunting buddy was good enough to take my son out for the youth season. Jared got his first deer at 80 yards with his H&R 20 gauge slug gun. He was one pumped up young man when he called me! It is great to have friends like that.......

    That sure is one happy kid! and a great shot....80 yards with a slug gun is great. Open sights? scope?

    His gun has a Nikon Pro-staff 3-9 x 40 installed. He was shooting Lightfield slugs. They really hit like a hammer!

    Nice job to your son! Good to have willing friends! 80 yards with a slug gun is pretty good!
