Seven-year-old Landon Hosey was hunting with his dad on private land in Botetourt County when he put the drop on this doe with an AR15 in 6.8 SPC caliber.
Nice deer, Landon! I hope it’s the first of many.

Love to see kids/family carrying on the tradition, most importantly the time and memories they gain from being together in the woods! Congrats young man on a nice buck.
Landon, good job. Are you related to Jimmy?
Nicely done little man,nicely done.
Congratulations are always in order when a young’un gets in on the action. One comment, though, the gun is not the star. Lose it, and the picture is complete, the focus should be on the young hunter, not the gun.
Congratulations Landon!!! I’m in the process of building a 6.8spc for deer hunting myself. Nice rifle!!
Way to go! Congrats!
Congrats Landon!!! Great job!!
Nice job buddy! (6.5 Grendel would look better)
