Default Proud Dad Moment!!!!

I've been looking forward to this day! My son (6) has sat countless hours in the stand with me hunting numerous game the last 4-5 yrs. We haven't worked too much on shooting with a scope but he figured it out really quick. I told him he had 1 shot and if he didn't hit I would back him up to make sure the pig is taken. Focused on the head with my .17 HMR and said he was ready so I clicked the safety off. 5 seconds later this nasty sow dropped. The screaming excitement after the shot from this boy was priceless! He sounded like someone else I know very well! Definitely a day I will never forget.

God's greatest gift to a man is a son... Congratulations to your little sharpshooter, and congratulations to you dad! You are one heck of a guide!! From the looks of her, she was a pig-poppin' machine!! No tellin' how many hogs he really killed with that one shot!
