    Tyler did a great job on his 2012 deer. :grin:

    He spotted the buck about a half mile off and we made a plan. We got down in the bottom of the draw and made a good stalk on him. We popped up where we thought he'd be and the buck had cruised down some and came out a little over 200 yards away.

    I ranged him at 209 yards and moving as Tyler got set up. He told me he was on him and I made a grunt with my voice and stopped the buck at 217 yards. The 139 Hornady SST outta the Beanland built 7mm-08, did great again !!

    The deer is right at 18" wide. Good meat for the freezer....

    Proud dad and a fun afternoon hunt !

    Impressive. He did a good job. I guess he is confident with his rifle.

    Awesome job! I have to ask since it is in the pic. Is that your rangefinder and how much does that beast of equipment weigh?! It almost overshadows the gun haha!

    Haha..yeah, I looked it up. That is some crazy stuff right there! I don't guess you will be needing another rangefinder for a loooooong time haha.
