    Happy Grampy!!

    Oct 26 was the Youth opening season in TX.
    My 10 year old grandson asked if he could try to get a deer this year. He is already a safe and accurate shooter so we began the ethics side of the preparation. (Hunter Ed before next year)
    While he was hoping for a mount worthy buck, the does were too much of a trial for his patience.........

    One shot and down!!!!
    Panhandle of TX, About 90 yds
    Marlin CST .357 Magnum
    Hornady LeveRevolution 140gr FTX, exited not recovered
    Lung shot, a little farther back than optimum. Lungs were jelly.
    She went less than 50 yds before laying down.

    Nice. Lung shots are OK, they usually leave a nice pink tissue and blood trail. No meat destruction. Tell the boy congrats.

    Now you done it, went and created a monster, Good for you I took my oldest Grandson out when he was 12, his first deer was a little 6 point cull, but he thought it was muy grande!!! PS he was mad the next week when the teacher made him shut up about it in class...

    Mak'in those memories to last a lifetime!
    Good on You Grampy! Your grandson will ALWAYS rememeber that day - AND you have provided photographic evidence that the .357 Marlin will clearly take a whitetail!
    Congrats again!
