    Man never thought I’d see my boys killing bucks . And after my 12 yr old missed two 22/24 inch 4 points broad side at 100 yards twice! I’ll have to wait longer . Kid cried all night. I missed my first buck 5 Times 30 yrs ago with a then brand new mod 70 feather weight .270 the same one he’s holding and missed with.. 4 yr old said it’s ok jase , we can stop at McDonald’s since we can’t eat buck tonight !

    My son missed easy shots on 3 or 4 nice gobblers before he connected the first time. And that was 20 something years ago, before they were easy to find.

    He needs a new gun, you jinxed that one when you were a little heathen.
    Hell, I'd still be crying.

    Persistence, he's got it! or rather "they" got it.
    Looks like an awesome place to make some great memories as the kids are growing up.

    I also see a pattern- maybe the recoil is a little harsh?My buddy has a Ruger in a 270 and honestly it kicks more then pretty much any other gun I have including 7 mag ,300 wsm,and my old 300.Just a thought.
