Got lucky this morning

Shot this about 7:30 this morning. He never gave me a good shot so I new I wouldn't get a pass thru. It was a quartering away at a bad angle. Just before he went in the woods I pulled the trigger. After looking and finding no blood I called a friend of mine that has a Lab that tracks wounded deer. He brought Sky over and in no more than 5 minutes she found him. Nothing like a good dog. It wasn't a long shot only just over 200yds with my 6x47. Thanks Dan

Nice deer and nice rifle! Those blood trailing dogs come in handy every now and then.

This dog didn't have any blood. She did it on scent alone. It is really fun to watch her work. Dan

Nice buck, i like how his right brow time bends out and the end of his left antler dips down.

What bullet? 130 grain VLD im guessing?

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755
