Default My 10 yr old's 1st Axis

[ATTACH][/ATTACH]My son finally got his 1st Axis this morning in Real County. We have been hunting hard and having a great time! God blessed us and he is so excited!!!!! Very proud of him getting ready in seconds and making the shot off of a 2 leg polecat on one knee at 140 yds. The buck was walking and with 2 more steps was gone. Went about 20 yds. Huge body and 8 pts (barely...haha). He's calling it an 8! Pics are sideways and not sure how to fix that. Sorry!

Great axis! What kinda mount are you thinking? I've always wanted an axis or fallow as a pedestal wall mount.

Oh he has been hooked! We used to hunt in Hebbronville and last year he shot his first deer, a cull that scored about 80 inches and he was pumped about that! He is still flying high today. My other son had shot one with 32" main beams years ago and we got a euro done, so I am doing a 3 piece rustic euro. Didn't want my other son to say "you didn't do a shoulder mount on my first one!" Haha

Thanks everyone! Mudslinger I saw your post and yours is awesome!!!!!!! Congrats! Yes, we hunt hard for axis. We seriously walked 15 miles in 2 days and rarely ever sit in a blind hunting for axis. No corn and no blind for this one. My favorite kind of hunting! I am trying to let my other son shoot a WT buck this season if we can find one old enough. That leaves nothing for me, but I have shot some nice critters, and it's way more fun and heart warming when they do. I think I feel more excited than they do! Great memories!
