Thought I would share some pics of my two favorite boys enjoying some hot prairie dog shooting on the forth of July! We headed up to my favorite "Honey Hole" in the sothern Bighorn Mountains on the morning of the 4th with some bottled water, juice boxes and hot dogs on ice! As much as I wanted to unleash the VTR on some 600 yard dogs, I decided to leave it home on ths trip. I really wanted my six year old son Mason to crater his first dog! Mason was shooting his slightly modified ruger 10/22, and Dawson his heavily modded Ruger 10/22. Right off the bat My youngest connected with a big un at 62 yards, doubling it over for a second shot to the bean! Then My oldest game hogged three out his side of the rig. The rule is, whomevers side of the truck the critter gets spotted on, thats which boy gets to shoot it. It works out to be pretty fair, but not perfect! My new girlfriend, Kaycee was ridin shotgun, and got so wrapped up in the fun, she decided she would take a crack at a few! Now you gotta understand, this is a girl who although born and raised here in Wyoming, had never before fired a weapon at a live animal. Her first one fell dead after one shot at 22 yards. Now here was my problem, I had three shooters, and only two shootin' irons...... All I heard ALL afternoon was, "My Turn, My Turn, My Turn"!! After about five hours of devistation, and "sharing nice", I told them we should finish up, bbq those hot dogs and head back to town in time to see the fireworks. My youngest replied with,"Dad, we can see fireworks anytime. Can't we just shoot a little while longer?" I Can't argue with six year old logic! We stayed another couple of hours, roasted our hot dogs, and celebrated our Forth Of July one bang at a time!

4th of July

Lucky307, Great!!! Thanks for sharing the pictures and story. I'd guess you're in the market for another Ruger 10/22? after that experience. The same sort of thing happened to me several years ago with my two grandsons. That's how I wound up with so many Coopers. All is well that ends well. John Kruzan

You have

to figure some way of packin more firearms to the field it looks like to me.

I hope you appreciate your situation there, if we had more kids and young ladies hunting and spending time with their dad or boy friends like you folks do, then the world would be a better place in my opinion. WD
