My Sons first deer!

8 Point buck shot with a .50 Lyman Mustang with 60 gr of 777 3fg and a 320 Grain Maxi Ball at 60 yards. 

 

Note: We forgot the camera and this picture was staged after our return home... He was wearing orange while hunting!

My daughter also shot her first Deer and I will be posting this as well soon.

My Daughter and me.

Actually, she shot hers with the same gun I am holding. She just wanted to be holding a gun in the picture as well. These were both shot with the Lyman Mustang with 100 grains of 777 3fg and 320 grain Maxi Balls. Okay... no more pictures...

Sorry Rev, missed this.

Sorry Rev, missed this. Usually look for the reports in the Whitetail section.  Congrats to all your kids!  Great deer, and their smiles say they're pretty stoked!
