Took the girls to try to put some fallow does in the freezer this past weekend. Each of the older two took one.

Sausage, ground venison, and the like are on the way.

Sounds like a fun outing. Looks like you guys saw some amazing creatures out there. Who made the kill shot?

Each of the two older girls took one doe. The ranch has a variety of exotics, including the Scimitar-Horned Oryx, Fallow, Red Deer, Axis, Barasingha, and Blackbuck. Not to mention whitetail.

What method was used in the take down?

Pre-64 Model 70 in .243, with the Federal Premium 100-grain Nosler Partition. It was my fathers (well, he may thing it still is!), and it has been nice seeing two of my children use it starting out.

Charles, I never noticed you were in Dallas until now. If you are interested in taking some hogs/pigs, we have a mess of them coming into our lease that we need to thin out. Our place is in Bellevue - about 45 minutes before Wichita Falls

Thanks for the offer. I enjoy hunting pigs and would be happy to go if schedules permit.

:lol: :lol: :lol: That comment made me laugh Seth. You could just as easily have said "What weapon and tactics were employed to eliminate the threat"

Good to see someone else bringing their girls up right. I have two of my own, one is 9 and the other is just turned 5. They have both been shooting a savage falling block .22 that I bought for the older when she was about 4. The older really likes prairie dog hunting already and as soon as she can buy a license we're going for the bigger stuff, she already (this year) has been out elk hunting with me and likes it. She can't shoot one yet but likes to see them and encourages me to shoot :lol: . I also have a Win. Model 70 Youth Ranger (not pre 64 :( ) in a .243 for them to start on the big game with. I'll probably start the older one shooting prairie dogs with it next summer.
