I took my father in law back to Kansas this year. We hunt on a relatives farm and always fill the freezer with grain fed whitetail. Sometimes we get lucky and get a nice buck to go with the meat doe's. This year instead of just giving my father in law a sighted in rifle and telling him to aim and pull the triggger I spent a lot of time prepping him. We went tot he range a couple of times. We went over the T/C Icon .308 top to bottom. We discussed the "new fangled" scope I installed for him.
A Nikon Prostaff 4-12 BDC reticle. I went over Nikon's Spot On Ballistic Program showing him how everything went together. Then more range time and off to Ks.. I also outfitted him with a Riflehunter 1000 rangefinder, his distance estimates were not great and a new Nikon Monarch 3 bino.
This year, he filled both his doe tags and shot a mnice mature 9 pointer. More importantly, all one shot stops and no meat damage. We had snow to hunt in and it was cold. Below zero 3 of the days with the wind chill. I don't know how many more times I'll be able to get my father in law out hunting with me but I can tell you, it was a real pleasure and most importantly, he said he had one of the best hunts of his life. I must say, so did I !
