Default 2014 Gun Success

The first one here is nine pointer i shot about 2 weeks ago. The second is a 12 pointer my buddy got this past sunday. The 12 only has a 15 inch spread but is a brute.

Pistol shot was about 25 yards. It's my first year hunting with a handgun so i'm not too confident beyond that yet. I havent shot enoguh. Surprised I was able to even hit this one.

One way to gain confidence with a handgun, is go squirrel hunting with a .22 handgun.
I use a .22 Taurus Tracker, and/or a Ruger .22 Govt Target Model Bull barrel.
When you get good at shooting squirrels in a tree with a handgun, shooting a deer is in the bag.
Practicing at small targets, makes hitting big targets easier.
Don't aim for the deer, aim for a spot on the deer.
Congratulations on a handgun deer.
