    Thanks! It’s the 2nd AR I built, almost 10 years later it’s a favorite. Geissele SSA-E, Hogan ambi billet lower, WMD NiB BCG, MF stock, 10” McGowen SS hand lapped 1-7 barrel, Syrac adj gas block, Seekins rail, Ranier ch, TBAC can and an Aimpoint T2 that works great with the PVS-14.

    yes he is and he bout killed my old arse dragging him up the hill from the creek but I'd do it a thousand times over. I thanked him and the Big guy for letting me take him today. I've always felt beholding to an animal when it gives its life for me to take its body to use. I know may sound goofy to some. I was raised to respect any animal I hunt to eat, and to give them their due respects when I've taken them. I wondered at first if I was going to be able to get him he was really cautious to a point. I watched him for close to 20 minutes as he had came up from the creek and he stood probably 10 yards from me and watched, smelled and listened and then figured he best walk around and check it out better from another angle. He turned went back down to the creek and went up about 40 yards and came up again about 60 yards in front of me coming up the other side of the ridge I've got our blind on. He came straight in on me to about 30 yards then went uphill to check out around the place. He then after bout 15 minutes came back down feeling it was ok and started to eat the corn probably 12 yards in front of me. I waitied bout 5 minutes and he got in a good position for me to shoot and I did end of what I considered and awesome evening, well not end long from it as I had to track and find him then drag him back up the hill from the creek back to the house but its all done now and once again I give thanks to the big boy and the boss man

    Yep. I agree. It's always important to be thankful.

    A few weeks ago, I killed that little buck. I took my daughters, 5yo and 7yo, to show them how to track it. When we found the body, I made sure it was dead and I called them over. They petted it, and then we prayed over it and thanked God for this gift of food.

    They are good girls and I thank God for them every day.

    My son who is 12 got his first one this afternoon. First one he has shot at he watched one last week for 10-15 minutes and wouldn't shoot. Today he said it was on if one came in. Bout 4:16 I wasn't even looking hard yet he said there is one in the corn. Got the rifle up asked if I was ready, and dropped the hammer. Hit him in the neck dropped in his tracks. He was using the same gun I used to kill my first couple of deer 30+ years ago. We got down and went to get it, I asked him why the neck shot after we had talked about shooting lungs, he said that's where I was aiming, I must have flinched. Well it was a good flinch, it all worked out. Nice button head and he didn't mess up any meat. He is ready for Wednesday afternoon now.

    With my old man eyes, under 100 yards nothing beats an Aimpoint. Hitting clay birds at 100 yards standing is easy.
    I have popped a few varmints at night using night vision and it worked great for that as well. I’ve a G33 magnifier of I want to reach out any further. Since it’s a SD gun, red dot.
