Be thankful you don't have a large coyote population. Where I'm from, the coyote population has exploded and that means small and medium game populations have suffered. I have seen some nice larger deer this year, but not as many fawns and smaller deer. Rabbits are scarce as well...

I'm 6'6" and I need about two more inches of stock in order to make it more comfortable to shoot.
In the interim get the Choate recoil pad for your mini,simple cheap way to get some more length to tour factory stack.. Its a simple R&R install no sanding etc. Just a screw...

Or a Shooterpads gel filled one. For $20, pulls over, looks professional enough, and soaks up recoil.

But it shoulders a lot better for me with my long arms and the eye relief for the scope is about as perfuleft as I could ask for. So that problem is solved now. Got all the locktite put on this morning, waiting for it to dry and plan on shooting it again in the morning unless I decide to go turkey hunting instead.
15.99...it'll fit like a glove....

I think it sounded good anyway :-D
i had a friend who has a family ranch supposedly infested with hogs. his dad invited me to clean some off....but my friend never wants to go out there.

i'd love to chart some scientific evidence of mini hog performance.......eh, not to be i guess....
