Yesterday, in preparation for the opening day of buck season the Gunwriter Assistant and I did two things’

We erected a ladder stand we ordered from Cabelas in the woods behind the house so when he skips school on the 23rd we will have a place to shoot his deer from.

We also sighted in the R15 in .30 Rem. AR with 125 gr. CoreLokts. The scope Bat selected for his hunt was the new Trijicon 1-4X 30mm AccuPoint (I approved and it seems he is learning what sights work best for deer in the timber.) From a rest or off shooting sticks he is deadly to 75 yards. (Just in case you are wondering; a .30 Rem AR does not kick too much for a 10 year old. Bat will attest to that.)

The excitement is building…
