Any one know of some good books that will help me / my son (13) learn how to shoot a rifle better than just plucking deer out of the woods at 100-200 yards? Want to move towards learning to shoot 300+ yards, read the wind, etc.

Try this link: http://www.odcmp.com/USAMU/Shooting_Tips.htm

Basic information, questions answered. Learn the very basics well and practice a lot till you learn your rifle well. Kind of like baseball - fundamentals are everything.
I will be doing a few months of "refresher" range time this spring - never hurts to re-learn the simple stuff.

enjoy yourself.

Hey Frog, a very good overview of the basics is "The Art of the Rifle" by Jeff Cooper (http://www.amazon.com/Art-Rifle-Jeff-Cooper/dp/1581605927/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1269548887&sr=8-3).

I'd also strongly urge for you and your son to attend an Appleseed event near you. PA has a very strong program. You will learn and hone the fundamentals necessary to shoot out to 500 yards.

www.AppleseedInfo.org for more information. Women, children under 21, and active duty military attend for free.

Here is the National Schedule (http://appleseedinfo.org/as_schedule2.php).
