    My Son's B-Day Present

    My son Pake turned 8 years old yesterday. We bought him a 7mm-08 in a Savage Axis youth model. I watched a you-tube video on a diy trigger job. Very easy took about 5 minutes max. We then installed a dnz game reaper mount, topped with a Nikon Pro-Staff 4X12X40mm BDC scope & butler creek caps. We zeroed it in, very accurate sweet shooting gun. I'm a Remington Model 700 guy myself, but was very impressed with this gun. $259 at Academy & well worth it. Happy B-Day for sure. It is awesome when your kids get old enough to hunt with you. I really look forward to this fall deer hunting.

    Sweet! Awesome birthday present. We were looking into the same gun and heard some really good things about it. Good luck this fall. It will be my son and I's first big game trip this year, too.

    All I did was pop the trigger out, 1 pin C clipped. Took some dikes & cut 2 coils off the spring. It was very simple.

    You can not go wrong with it for the money. It is a good gun & round.

    The guns that my dad gave me for my birthday/Christmas mean far more to me than any gun that I ever bought for myself.

    Nice work Eberle!
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Yessir. There is nothing better than hunting with your kids. You and your son are going to have lots of great times together. Take lots of pictures/video. Time flies. Thankfully, hunting together doesn't end when he turns 18. I still hunt with my dad as well as my son. Good stuff.
