Thread: Magical moment!

  1. #1

    Magical moment!

    My eldest son turned 14 in February so we wasted no time in applying for a coterminous FAC/SGC. It came through last week. We went for a foot stalk tonight, him with a .22LR and me with a 25.06. Before long we came across a couple of bunnies at about 50-60m. He gets up on the 'monkey sticks' and smacks one neatly through the head. (He has done this numerous times before with his Air Arms S200 .177 and is an annoyingly good shot!).
    A bit futher round the wood and I spy a young 4-point Roe Buck in velvet behind a holly bush. I set him up on the sticks with the 25.06 and tell him to wait with the safety catch applied. I lasered the bush at 124 yds. I tell him to wait until the buck emerges and then to chest shoot it. It wasn't too long before the buck moved to the right a bit. Crack!-Whack! the buck kicks out it's back legs and runs off into the trees. The point of shot showed a good patch of pins and lung blood/tissue. A good blood trail led us about 40-50m into the trees where we find this fella stone dead!

    He did the gralloch himself, although I did have to suspend it for him. A textbook mid-chest shot! A very happy boy and an extremely proud Dad! Undoubtedly a magical moment which we will both recount for years to come and a memory which will last forever! Well done mate!
    Dad.
