Just got back from a short overnight Back Pack hunt on the Sambar. Got into camp too late to hunt so got up early and had a hunt.
Found some sign and tracked this stag back to its bedding area.
Missed first shot as it ran away but steadied for the second and hit him at 100 yards on the run as he angled down and away from me.
Very happy with the results, Stag in late velvet, went 28.5"x29.5"x34"
Bullet struck centre of the shoulder and lodged under skin at base of neck.
Rifle 338WM Sako. Bullet 250grain Hornady HPBT Match @ 2735fps
