Alright folks, opening weekend in SD and I scored big for my area. Goats in Bennett Co South Dakota don't get much bigger than this. Haven't measured it and I am not going to try and estimate but the hunt was very memorable.
Took two shots at 683m with 6mm 75gr Vmax ammo in the AR.243WSSM with Gemtech HVT suppressor. First shot was high, just above the spine and at the very front of the back straps. 2nd shot was right on the money, through the left shoulder blade, through the body cavity, out the right side and lodged in the right shoulder. An over all great end to a wildly adventurous hunting weekend. Next weekend I will be returning for my doe as well as resuming my archery deer experience in the same county.
All else, good luck this season.
