Opening Day Buck Down
« on: November 07, 2012, 01:50:42 PM »
Opening day of rifle season in my area today
Got out to my #3 spot because the #1 and #2 spots had trucks in front of them

I started jumping deer as soon as I left the truck and climbed up onto the coulee edges to glass and look for some deer and I spotted this guy about 500 yards below me on the edge of some buck brush.
I slid down on my butt to a better vantage point where I could get a good rest and lay flat prone.
The shot was about 275 yards and the sound of the 120 grain out my Tikka 25 cal made a loud slap as it hit him in the chest.

The rest is history. 8)

   


Got to christen the brand new Redwood burl blade I made for myself too

Nice buck. I found four 4 point mulies up by Hays on Wed, but no white tail.

You'll have to shovel another path to get back to the house. ;) Not loving it quite as much. We have to take the kids out hunting with us and that is not as doable in a snow storm. Still wanting to fill my cow moose tag.
