Was down Island yesterday at the young fellow's place - three little piggies butcher time.
He certainly made a big point of thanking me for the hunt again, and specifically that old scattergun.
I'll never part with it unless I hand it down to my own son sometime.

Good on him - made my jaded old heart glow! :Oh Yeah!:

Cheers,
Nog

Sometimes not being able to post in topics of interest is a pain in the butt...

Regardless...

This tale keeps getting even better!

Yesterday River Sportsman in Campbell River held their annual Big Buck Contest.
Quite a few entries!

Long story short, our Young Gun took first in Youth, then went on to win Best Overall for 2018!!! :Oh Yeah!:
He kept the first place prize, a new scattergun.
The Youth prize he returned with these words:

"Young ones like me and him are our future. He should get that prize, and I insist that he does."

Sure as hell made this old heart swell with pride I'll tell you!! :kewl:



And true to his (and his Pa's nature) they didn't let even a single day go by without trying out the new toy!

Checking the fit:



Ready to shoot:



The report came back that it is a very nice shotgun, with a rather good full choke.
Super tight patterns.
50 rounds today.
Happy Happy!

Yep - Happy Happy all round!! :Oh Yeah!:

Cheers,
Nog

THIS FROM IRONNOGGIN (Matt) - a fitting end to chapter one..... :applause:

Cabelas held their Big Buck Contest in Naniamo yesterday.
And a rather fitting Finale for this tale occurred...

The Young Gun won Best Buck Overall and Youth once again!




And picked up another fine set of binoculars for doing so!



Must have shaken my hand fifteen times! LOL!

His biggest concern was getting me to agree to take him hunting again this coming fall.
Tried to string him along, but was giggling so hard it was of no use! :highly_amused:

Of course my Young Friend!
Would not miss it for the world!! :Oh Yeah!:

Cheers!
