Default 5 year old - first bow kill - video!

Brooks has been putting a lot of time in practicing with his crossbow, so I decided it was time to let him loose on some hogs. I planned on starting him on some smaller pigs, but there was no way he was going to pass up a shot at this boar. He hit a tad high, but did awesome for his first shot taken on an animal!

Enjoy and feel free to critique!

Thank you Jeremy! It is a Mission Sub 1XR. I bought it off a guy here, but it is fast and the stock is completely adjustable. It is full size, so heavy and needs to be shot off a bipod with kids. I swapped the scope out and put a red dot on it so it is a little easier for him to acquire the target.

Good stuff! That's the first time I've been the first to thumbs up a video also. Hope he never looses that excitement.

He has been bitten by the bug! We are going to South Texas in a couple of weeks and he will be on doe duty. The best part is that I told him that I would take him next year to shoot some exotic does or rams, but he is insistent that he wants to shoot a buck. After telling him how much they cost, he has decided that he is asking for "money to shoot a black buck or auodad ram" for Christmas and his Birthday and that he wants no toys or other presents, Ha!
