why you should not hunt with Match Kings.....
BECAUSE THEY KILL THINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Had all of you going, didn't I?!!
Last Friday I managed to score upon a nice 8 point buck. Wasn't longrange by any means, but it was dark-30, trotting quartering towards me through corn. First shot wasn't the best, I caught him a little far back but took out the spine and then blew through the pelvis/hip joint. Left a 3" exit hole. Took a second shot in the neck to put him down.
308 Win, BH 175 at 2650. Buck weighed about 250 lbs. Gross scored about 130 B&C.
Then Sunday I harvested two mature does weighing about 170 and 200 lbs. One at 80 yds, the second at 50. Both ran about 50 yds before expiring. Blood trail was 3 feet wide for the 50 yards. 4" exits.
I was all set up for up to 800 yard shots and both times the damn things nearly step on me! Oh well! There is still the anterless only season in Dec.
I know this is preaching to the choir, but just more evidence that MK's do work and even in less than ideal shot placements.
Will try to figure out how to get a pic on here.
