First buck of the season

Not far , just 240 yds, but still rewarding [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
190 smk out of a 300 Winnie @ 3050 fps , head on shot coming down a hill very slight left quarter with head down feeding. POA junction of neck /shoulder , soon as I got back in scope feet sticking up , coupla kicks then lights out. No bullet recovery as I did'nt want to open the body , just skinned , took shoulders ,tenderloin and hams ( oh yeah the horns too [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] )

Gotta go , I hear the woods a callin' Jim

    Nice buck! I will take those 'close shots' anytime available. We all know about those far shots that didn't connect. Congrats!

    Jimm,

    COngrats on a fine buck. I think the point of long range hunting is being prepared for a long range opportunity if it presents itself. As hunters we take advantage of the chances we get no matter the range.

    Good shot, good buck, keep us posted on any future progress!!
