Thanks for all the kind words gentleman! Here is a pic of him and the deer. It's a super long video but when it comes down to it we video for the memories not the views!

It was a wound appeared to be from archery season, the deer was actually in pretty bad shape, hardly had any muscle left.

Way to go! My 9yo and I just watched the video, connor was rooting him on. Great video that you will cherish forever. Brought a tear to my eye thinking about Connors first. I don't care if I ever get to shoot again if I can keep hunting with, helping, and watching kids get to enjoy this wonderful way of life we enjoy!

I hope so. I just know my 5 year olds biggest fear is the sound of the gun...and over time some kids will start jumping/flinching anticipating the noise and kick of the gun.

Amen Brother I feel the same way, I get far more excitement watching them do it! It's hard to put into words.

Certainly not stepping on any toes sir, the rifle is suppressed and while it is still fairly loud it just below what is considered to be safe db it also helps with recoil, when we are practicing a lot we switch to 223 for even less recoil to try and avoid the dreaded flinch.
