    This was my first time ever hunting with a rifle I have been hunting with a bow my entire life but this is my first rifle hunt. I shot this buck after my father in law wounded it and finished it off. The does I shot the next day and droped them in there tracks at 150 and 200 yds with a savage .243 i borrowed from an uncle these were the longest shots of my life so I am now hooked and want to start hunting at longer ranges.
    Thanks for looking and good luck to those in the field.

    Congrats on your hunts. I like the bucks appearance!!!
    The last picture you posted looks like a catalog picture, real nice scenery, and exactly what most of us would like to be doing:)
    Thanks for posting.
