    Was out yesterday on the farm again and just as the light was dropping I spotted this munty at 150yds trotting along a hedgerow from left to right directly in front of me. I took position on the bipod watching through the duralyt for the right moment to take the shot. He pushed his way through the hedgerow and then proceded along another hedge perpendicular to the first so as to give me no shot other than his rump. I was about to give up for the day as he approached the 250yd mark on my rangefinder when he decided to stop in his tracks turn right and come across in front of me again, this time from left to right. By now he was about 225yds away, walking very slowly, sniffing the ground as he went. I got him in my crosshairs and allowed 3-4" for the strong 10-15mph 3 oclock wind and squeezed the trigger gently on the Tikka watching through the Duralyt as the 50grain Sierra Varminter gave the buck the good news.

    I've never even heard of a Munty buck. I'd shoulder mount that critter in a heartbeat.

    Haha...might as well go ahead and full body mount it. Would probably cost way less than an elk shoulder mount.

    I could not tell if it's good enough to mount-never heard of one much less seen one. Thanks for the picture, and opportunity to learn something new today.

    My dads gun club has two of those mounted in it. They are cool looking critters when you look close at them. Nice shooting!

    Ok, I thought it said mutiny buck. Was thinking this might be a good story. Even though I was wrong about the title it's still a good story. Pretty cool, full body mount.

    That would make an awesome european mount as well. I really like the fangs :)

    I saw a bunch of fanged deer when I was in Korea...very cool looking.
    You should mount it for sure!
