    Default Gunners second boo. (9 years old)

    Just got back from a hunt up north. Bagged 8 boo between 3 of us. Had a few nice bulls but nothing huge. On our last day of hunting we found a large heard of big bulls. After a slow 1 mile stalk I got gunner 100 yards from a few nice bulls. He got the biggest we saw. What a monster!

    That's pretty awesome. I really miss being that old and doing trips like that with my old man.

    He is using a Ruger hawkey in 308 with a snipod.

    Wow, that is quite a spectacular caribou (and a nice cape, by the looks of it). Congratulations to the young hunter!

    How old was he when he got his first? My daughters going with me this weekend, getting ready to turn 7. She wants to get her first but I'm going to make her wait at least one more year. She's stuck with rabbits and grouse this year.

    He was 7 for his first boo, 8 for his first deer on kodiak, 8 for his first black bear, and now 9.
    I just rough scored his boo and it looks like it is a booner.
    Not sure if we will have it scored but still pretty cool.

    Lucky kid, I didn't kill my first deer until I was 13. Congrats. I hope my 7month old son can be that lucky that early too.

    Good rack, good cape (like Brian said) and a good chunk of meat in the freezer. What more can you ask?
    Is he in training for some long shots?

    Not at this time. I am not a long range hunter as a rule I just started playing with it last year. I say a 726 yard shot is nice shooting. A 100 yard shot is good hunting.
    Both Gunner and I enjoy the stalk and getting close as well. Just nice to know you reach out there if you want to.
    I am proud of that long shot.
    I am more proud of a 1 mile stalk with my son including belly crawling and cresting a bench 100 yards from a group of trophy bulls without there knowing. Then time to set him him up for a one shot kill.
