Opening day started slow here in Western NY with my son snoring at 08:00 in my seat. I understand as he traded me his blind seat and it was so uncomfortable I walked outside and stood as he slept! At 0900 I saw does fooling around in the swamp acting like a buck was bugging them. Well he appeared by the time I backed into the blind and woke up snoring Sasquatch!! He made a beautiful 50 yard quartering away shot. Contrary to popular belief my 7 year olds hand loaded 52 grain hollow point from his 22-250 did the job perfectly!!!! Heart shot hips dropped there and it took the beautiful animal a few seconds to realize he was ours!! An oblong 4” entrance hole and a pulverized heart, no damage to opposite side ribs. We did find some lead bits but no copper in the jellied armpit mess.

That’s awesome.
You can hunt big game at 7 years old in NY now?
