Re: my 2010 Whitetail

He's definitely got great mass! Did you consider him big enough to mount?

Re: my 2010 Whitetail

I got a european mount done, the wife doesn't like heads in the house. I have been getting european's done and hanging them in the garage, its going to have to be a good one for a full head mount. I am hoping one day that I get one that is worthy. this is a picture of my dad and I with our 2011 deer that we got the same morning.

Re: my 2010 Whitetail

The gun that I shot my 2011 deer was a custom built from Corlane Sporting Goods and Rocky Mountain Rifles in Dawson Creek B.C. it is a 6.5-284 Norma with a Joel Russo stock, Pac-Nor supermatch barrel 1-8 twist, Borden Action, Jewel trigger, and a badger FTE muzzel brake. I am shooting 140gr Berger VLD at 2850 fps.

I shot my deer at 300 yards which wasn't a far shot by no means but the bergers performed flawlessly. One shot and he piled up right where he stood, dropped strait down and never moved a muscle.

I had spotted him from 1 3/4 miles away and moved in for the kill. I drove a little closer up to a big hill and thought maybe I could take a poke from there, but he was a little two far yet. 1500 yards was a lot too far yet 800 sure but not that far. So then the stalk was on, walking my way closer trying to stay hidden in the small rolling hills with little to no cover. I made it to about 600 yards to a small hill and thought I could wait till he came feeding out into the open but could not wait for the other deer in the area started to move off. I then decided to sneak up to the hill where he was feeding on the other side and did not see him, and thought there goes another good one. when all of a sudden I seen something dark in the buck brush, and there he was at 300 yards. I was surpised he was not running away cause by that time I was fully exposed for about a minute or two. I layed down with my bipod deployed and put the crosshairs on the back of his shoulder and pulled the trigger, i heard the hit and he was gone. He dropped strait down with his legs still underneith him and never moved a muscle.
