    Bob-white quail/ .410 single shot shotgun. I think I was 6yrs. old also started taking squirrels that same year with that same shotgun.

                    Squirrel, 10 yrs. with a 20 ga. single shot. It was bad, because I shot him from about oh, 2 feet away. Long story as to how that happened.

                        My first game animal was a snowshoe rabbit(actually this animal is a hare) and it was horrible, I didn't make the shot that I should have made. This hare was shot with the 22 rimfire. The second animal was a 6 pt 167 lbs whitetail shot with my dads 270 win. That I was not supposed to be shooting, or for that matter, even touching. I got so excited that I left dads rifle on the ground and dragged the deer home without gutting the animal, pretty tough drag for a young boy. When I finally got home my parents were just starting to organize a search party. I'm here to tell you that dragging that buck out was the easy part of that night!!!

                          The most rememable was my second year deer hunting. 9 pointer with 16 1/2 spread. I'm sure I killed squarils and rabbits before then.
