We spotted this one with a couple of females about 700 yards away. It was on top of a ridge and spotted us immediately and went on high alert. We sat down under a tree and watched it, hoping it would drop back over the ridge and give us a chance to sneak up on it. What did it do? It trotted right towards us watching us the entire time! I setup for the shot and finally dropped it at about 250 yards in self defense!

Very nice job! Also good job w/pic of you w/ your goat. Alot of times guys don't put time into making photos look good. If it wasn't for the blood on mouth you'd think you were holding alive buck down.

7-08 Ackley Improved, shooting 140g Northforks. First game I've taken with Northforks and it was utterly devestating.
