    Proud Dad Moment

    We all hope our son's won't turn out like us but secretly we admire the imitation, as the saying goes - 'imitation is the sincerest form of flattery'.

    Like all modern sons, my boy loves his iPhone, iPad and computer; it's quite often a struggle to get him out the door.

    Yesterday actually wasn't that hard and the rewards were there...

    I guess it'd be right to say he's a third generation hunter. I hope his kids enjoy hunting but won't be disappointed if they don't.

    Well done @craigc . First deer with a 300RUM!, impressive. My son is still in the practicing phase, shooting hares with the .243
    If my work annoys me, I cull them

    It is fantastic to see young fellahs getting out with their old man the way we did. Congratulations to both.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Looks like he handled it well though. You selling your 284 now you've got the RUM up and running?

    (A) Never (B) Its still shooting the load it came with at one MOA. Its going to have to go better than that to stay in my safe. Ive got three more different projectiles to try. Im guessing the 208s Amax will be the shitz, or the 210s Begers or the 195 Tiped Game Kings...
