Default Son's first kill

My son just turned 12 and finally got an interest in hunting. I never pushed him to do it but he has been excited since last season to shoot something this season. I told him he had to kill a pig first before I let him shoot a deer on youth weekend. He shot good with his Grandpa's 30-30 so that's what he's been using. After 3 weekends of trying to get him on a pig, it finally happened at 7pm tonight. He made a perfect shot and destroyed the heart. The hog only made it 20ft. As soon as he shot he said "I'm shaking!" Lol. It was fun experiencing that with him.
