My 7y/o was able to take his first deer last night, and a nice 6 point on top of that. My season has been made and after his reaction last night I think I’ve got a new hunting buddy for life!!!! He used my ar-15 shooting a 62g federal factory load. We put a cabelas brand 1-6 scope on it for him and I was extremely impressed with the glass quality for such an inexpensive scope. Rifle was mounted on a predator tactics tripod.

That is awesome! Congrats to both of you.

My daughter used a similar set-up on her first deer at about a the same age. I was more excited about that deer, a doe, than I was with my bighorn.
I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited. Nothing like watching your child succeed at something they have been wanting for a while.
