Story: "This nice 7 point was taken with the first shot fired through a new 30-30 given to me for an early Christmas present just the night before. We were hunting an open patch of hardwoods with a ridge running up the left side with thicker cover. I spotted the buck coming up from the bottom of the hardwoods sticking close to the cover. I waited until he had worked within about 40 yards and the new 30-30 was right on the money. The 1st bullet fired from the new rifle went straight through his heart and the buck dropped within 10 yards from where he was hit! That was exciting! My younger brother Matthew can't wait to get his shot!"
