    Took my son on his first bobcat hunt using hounds. He was able to connect with his second shot from his 22 mag using my shoulder as a rest. As you can tell from his smile he is proud as punch. What he doesnt realise is my smile is ten times bigger only on the inside. Good job young man.

    It was a Ruger 77/22 WMR shooting full metal jackets. Best bullets for no fur damage.
