Tyler does it again....

Tyler did a great job on his 2012 deer. :grin:

He spotted the buck about a half mile off and we made a plan. We got down in the bottom of the draw and made a good stalk on him. We popped up where we thought he'd be and the buck had cruised down some and came out a little over 200 yards away.

I ranged him at 209 yards and moving as Tyler got set up. He told me he was on him and I made a grunt with my voice and stopped the buck at 217 yards. The 139 Hornady SST outta the Beanland built 7mm-08, did great again !!

The deer is right at 18" wide. Good meat for the freezer....

Proud dad and a fun afternoon hunt !

Impressive. He did a good job. I guess he is confident with his rifle.

Awesome job! I have to ask since it is in the pic. Is that your rangefinder and how much does that beast of equipment weigh?! It almost overshadows the gun haha!
