The kid has taken several md & wt does / yearling bucks, but decided she would hold out for 4+ pointer (western count) this year.

Super! What was she shooting?

 

I've really been enjoying all the posts and pics of members' children and grandkids with game they've taken. Bodes well for the future of outdoor pursuits.

Rem 700, 7-08, Rem managed recoil loads (140g, I think).  She shot him at 220 yards (farther than Gramps approves¬¬).  Son told her to hold a bit high. So she did.... and spined the buck just barely aft of the shoulder.

That's some fine shooting.  220 yards isn't a gimme for anybody.

Congrats

Nice buck.  Like others have said in previous posts.  The 7-08 is a deadly round. My son started shooting one when he was 7. 22 now and still shoots that caliber. It is a good round for all ages.

Yes, and yes, on it being a round that will last anyone a lifetime. It's basically all I use for deer in Maine outside of a bow.

Nice buck and she looks happy, probably didn't like the drag though it is part of the hunt.
