That is one long shot. Great job pulling it off. That is a nice deer and a very cool shot.

    Yeah I would of loved to see this buck 1-2yrs ago, he had 2 does with him and he was raking his antlers in a tree getting ready for the rut..... but I dont think he was the biggest one on that mountain! We are going back in to try and find another one, now that our legs and knees are back to normal! He is going to be mounted in a aggresive shoulder mount with his head turned and tipped down alittle with the whites of his eyes showing, I think it will be one hell of a mount, I might never shoot a buck this big again, but I do know where to go, Im sure his genes are on the mountain!

    Very nice deer and shot. The score means nothing. It's big and heavy. Increasing my chance of shooting deer like that, is the whole reason I got into long range shooting.

    Congratulations.

    Congratulations on the nice buck! Good shooting too.

    If your buck had longer tines... He'd have really scored well. Agree w/you - I would have liked to have seen him two years ago - maybe even three or four years ago... Quite a buck and I'd be mighty proud of him if he was mine!

    Regards, Guy
