Heres a picture of my nephew and his first Deer, Im assuming a Sitka Blacktail, as thats where he lives.
So, as this tital indicates,'Aas I was writing this post', he Facebook'd the oldest daughter that he had, indeed, placed the shot on a second one, another Bang-down neckshot.
That is an M-39 he used with FMJ Russian 1988 Production. He bought that recently, but before that he'd hadLots of practise shooting and careing for an M-44 Mosin I gave him sometime back. The M-39 is a major step up from the harsh little carbine and the M-39 is a pleasure to shoot he tells me, and I agree .......shuks... his interest has taken off in an awsome way, but I guess its in the blood.
