Colorado buck down !

Finally after 5 long years of waiting to draw a tag for the 4th season in unit 25, this guy came out fighting with 2 other smaller bucks for all the does in the hay field. After waiting for a clear shot for about 10 minutes he offered a broadside shot at just over 350 yards. The 140 vld from my 6.5wsm hit him just behind the shoulder and he stumbled for about 10 yards before hitting the dirt. The coolest thing was that after he hit the ground the other deer in the field scattered about 50 yards or so after the shot, then the 3 x 3 that he chased away went right up to him to make sure he was done for, then went right out to the 8 does and herded them up and pushed them to the other end of the field. He owes me tough!!!!!!!

Nice buck! I've got a 6.5 RSAUM and it too is a deadly little cartridge on deer...as you've proven.
