08 muley down...

Jumped a 1 horned nontyp with a HEAVY 10" horn,with a short dropper when this buck emerged from the timber.Ranged the first buck at 760(actually 713 i was hitting the trees behind him) and did some quick math using the drop chart on the side of the 8mag,held apprx 3 deer over him and broke his back right behind the shoulder with the first shot,had to put another one in him to finish it.By far the best buck I have seen this year,his mass is outstanding.
