I ended up shooting this fellow at about 15 yds:
But if he had been farther out, I would have been ready!
Oh well, sneaking up to a buck like this in the brush is very satisfying as well. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Yup, a 240 MK can kill them at short range....
Overall, it was probably the best year for us:
Bigger bucks have been taken, but never have they averaged so big.
Anyway, I got him quickly and that left some time to get my LR fix whacking the gong....
It's all good.
