My son got himself a couple of Jacks, the biggest one 6-1/2 pounds he nailed while it was running away at about 35 yrds. The best part of the day was that smile, already sent a photo to the grandparents.Attached File  1.jpg   24.62KB   28 downloads

  • Interests:I am into foraging of all kinds. Hunting for game is just one aspect. Every time I am out in the back country I am looking for edible, useful and medicinal flora and fauna. I am also constantly working on survival skills. Hunted as a boy for squirrel, rabbit and some upland birds. I am a farmer by trade and I work for an organic farm founded on ethical work practices.

That is just about what I remember feeling after my first jacks. Especially when they are on the run. Nothing quite like it! Great Job!

Great job! It looks like he got them with an airgun too, which is even tougher on the run.
