    When't out this morning. Some guy when't for a walk in front of my stand! Blaze orange head to toe with no gun. Needless to say this was not a successful morning.

    When I get one I'll post some pics.

    Got one.

    I shot a really nice sized spike buck, about 175 lbs. I shot him with my .270 Savage 111 with a 3x9 scope @ 377 yards! I didn't think it was that far until I paced it off. I was resting on a forked stick I had cut for a shot like this if it came up.
    I figured he was about 300 yards. I had my zero at 200. So at 300 I should be 7" low. I thought he could be farther so I tried to hold 10"-12" above the heart, that way I would still hit the lungs if he really was only 300 yards. At 375 yards that bullet drops 16". I hit just to the front of the heart and down about 2" or so. I hit the front leg/lower shoulder and passed through the lower chest and out next to the opposite leg. He ran about 100 yards into the woods and laid down. I had left my rifle with my chair so I shot him with the .357 I was carrying.

    I'll be posting something about the bullets I used and how they were disappointing.

    Saturday at around noon. Quartering away with a Barnes TSX, Knocked him down in his tracks. Never before had I seen such a clean kill. He just dropped right there and never moved.

    Many thanks for the pics. I wish I could manage getting out this year but it is not meant to be sadly.

    I'll try to get some of ours up...not much to brag about, I missed one at about 300 yards, but our group got 4 total, a big-bodied buck with a small rack, a nice doe, a spike, and a yearling that was all chewed up by the wolves and to tired to even run away...

    I don't think he got enough sleep Saturday evening this was him Sunday morning. The other pic is a doe my cousin shot out of my brothers stand Sunday afternoon.
