Fair poke on the last day of rifle season.

Here is a picture of the buck that I harvested this past Saturday (Picture taken Sunday without my orange).

Semi custom Win M70 chambered in Rem 300 Ultra 26" SS w/Shrewd brake, Kahles 3x9 w/ TDS reticle, Harris bipod, Sworv 65mm, Leica 1200, 180gr Nos BT.

Shot was ranged at 477 quartering away, fairly thick cover so I was threading the needle. I was able to put it right in the boiler plant so he only ran 35 yards

Too late to get a pic of the entry/exit?

What state were you hunting in? Pa, Md, WVa?

I don't see the bipod? It was pretty cold Saturday to be bellying down in the snow. Actually the sun came out about 10:00 and it got pretty nice for a while out in western Maryland.

I live in SW Pa. I'll tell ya, the Rivers West clothing that I am wearing in the picture is awesome stuff. Besides a little cold never hurt anyone. The bipod was removed to fit in the gun case. I needed to skin the ol' boy to give the meat to my brother in law before the steeler game. I was in a hurry to be properly equipped.

[/ QUOTE ] No I totally forgot. The entry and exit hole were almost the same size. I wondered about the expansion of the ballistic tip as the bullet never hit a solid bone. It entered and exited between the ribs. The goodies inside were pretty much mush...go cavitation.

Re: Fair poke on the last day of rifle season.

Thats a very nice buck for pa. This was by far the worst season I have ever seen in PA. The game commission really has things screwed up. There were some larger bucks im my area but the poachers got most of them before season ended. The brown its down thing is working in Pa, in a few more years deer are going to be very rare. Just what they want less tree and vehicle damage. The game comission is getting paid off to kill the deer off and they are doing a very good job of it.
