A client of mine has a son who is an Avery Outdoors pro staff member and an avid, avid hunter. Greyson is 11 years old and has been on more hunting trips than most grown men I know, and he shoots better than 90% of them as well.

Check out this Facebook story from his dad:

"The Adventures continue!

We have been on quite a few trips since our last post.

Here is Grey with his personal best elk.





Grey harvested this great herd bull in the mountains of New Mexico this past Oct with a muzzleloader on the last morning of a very hard and physical hunt.

The bull green scored a 342! What is more amazing is that Grey took this bull with one shot at 425 yards with a muzzleloader.
New Mexico as well as a handful of other states allows the use of very modern muzzleloaders that are capable of accurately being effective at very long range distances.

Grey was using a Gun Werks custom muzzleloader - an amazing piece of equipment, but it's only as good as the shooter behind it.
Congrats Grey! Mom and I are very proud of you not only for your shooting skills but more importantly for your determination and never quit attitude."

Well I'm not a math guy, but referred this shooting feat to my resident Math Wizard. Here's his take on it. "How much elevation did he use, at 2500 mv= 1/2 sec= 8' drop. Luck or Texas BS." Wonder what the "Energy in Ft Pounds" that round had when it brung down that Elk? For a 30-06 180 grain slug it would have been less than 1,354 on arrival at the critter.

Thanks for the web link. So the 11 yr old was using a Johnson Muzzleloader with 300 grain Whitetail bullet? I've always read about bullets needing to arrive with 1,600 lb of energy to consistently down big game. The 300 Grain arrives at 400 yds with 920 ft lb. according to their figures. Whatever, their web site has some fine testimonials.
