My first racked buck

I shot this fella January 2nd this year in a little 100 acre cut over of mine while he was chasing a doe. He first popped up in the brush @ 350 and he worked back in to 250 before I could get a good clean shot and I put a 165 gr. SGK (through a browning BAR 30-06)down the line. Dropped him in his tracks!







He is @ the taxidermist now drying.... the 60 day drying period is up, so if I get a chance I'm gunna go pick up the rack and take it to the mississippi department of wildlife fisheries and parks office in Jackson, MS for a real score. The taxidermist believes he is gunna go low 140s.

Re: My first racked buck

for me looking @ the pics he doesnt really look that big to me... I guess me being almost 6'5" and 300lbs makes him look a little small to me

Re: My first racked buck

thanks fellas! I didnt expect him to be AS BIG once I get him on the ground... i've always heard of shrinkage... this fella GREW once I got to him! Which it didnt help that the only actual optics I had was my rangefinder and the ancient bushnell scope thats on the rifle. I went to grab my nikon binos and they fell apart when I got out of the truck.... I wasnt happy about that!

Re: My first racked buck

very nice deer i would take him anyday. So how much did he weigh. His body does not look very big so i am guessing you are in a southern state and being that you killed in January with a rifle also leads me to belive its in the south. Well anyway great deer and congrats.
