Yes sir it is. He will have good fields of fire coming right in front of him, and should be able to see any deer well before he has to take his shot. He is knocking on 9 yrs of age, and just loves hunting! When the leaves are off the trees, you can see 100+ yards to the bottom. I want the animal close however, one because he is young, and two because the power scope he is using maxes out at 4x.
You can't kill'em sittin' on the couch!
