Fed the beast




I fed my stw this morning. Shot it from around 480 yards through the back of the neck trotting away with a bit of a crosswind.

140 accubond pushed with 82 rl25 lit by a 215 in rem brass.

Oh, and it was a two hour drag out on duck taped boots because the soles came loose when my brother and I split up and ran him down.

Re: Fed the beast



another pic with the rifle..... caught me talking on this one, dang it...

I actually got him on the third shot, as the first shot found brush as he was trotting through it; he changed direction as the second shot was sent causing the pill to find a tree. He cleared the brush and slowed a bit as I sent the third shot. I actually thought it might have been a texas heart shot until I got up on him and saw the neck hit.

P.o.a. was off body around ten inches above the ears and doping slightly for the wind with constant follow-through.

Re: Fed the beast

Nice job. That looks like a heck of a rack for a ND buck. I've seen huge bodied deer up there but usually more of a basket rack.

Great job of sticking to it and working through it on the shooting as well.

Being a Texan we learn to look ahead along the path game is traveling and try to time the shot so bullet and beast arrive at that clear spot at the same time but that takes lots and lots of practice and a wide field of view.

Great job again and congrats.

Re: Fed the beast

That looks like a hunt you will look back on for years to come. It is really fun to reach out and touch something.

Nice shot!

Good deer for N.D. for sure. I typically get a smallish racked 4 by or 5 by that'll barely make 100 points if you are lucky. Odd thing is when we got settled down we realized my Pops killed a deer (similar size) in the same draw a couple of years ago with his stw.
