South coast Blacktail

Found this buck in the last few days of general season in Oregon. Glassed the same unit my wife shot her first buck in opening weekend, and spotted him at 510 yds facing me. My first shot i got a little excited and pulled a little hard on the trigger, hitting him in his left shoulder. He spun Broadside holding his back leg up at that point. My second shot i made sure was a good one and put it through both shoulders within an inch of where i was aiming and he was down for good. I used the exact same log for a rest as what she did a month earlier. was a tough season with the weather here. rifle was a Sendero .300 RUM shoting Barnes VORTX 180 gr, TTSX, i finally got it put together and shooting only 2 weeks earlier. The last pic is both of our Bucks from this season.

Great job on a super nice blacktail. Looks like you're getting ready for goose hunting now!

I love hunting blacktail and the big ones are hard to come by. Congrats to both of you.
