Shot him at 620yds with a 143eldx from my 6.5cm. It was a low cloud day with 8” of fresh snow the night before and still lightly snowing periodically. He dropped instantly then sat back after 30-45seconds on his fronts and I shot him again in the neck, dropping him flat.
    Then the oddest thing happened.
    The smaller buck that had peacefully been trailing him ran over and started goring him. I actually videoed it. He rooted and gored my deer, pushing him about 30 yards through the snow. He didn’t look at me until I was 40 yards away, heading towards him. I think with the type of day it was, he never even heard the shot and when the deer dropped he saw his chance to get him. It was bizarre. 38DD2653-0F13-419D-8AFD-9E5DB94AEE9C.jpeg EBB572EF-CD11-40FC-A8CF-F14D4E6F0CC5.jpeg

    That's a nice buck. I've seen Bison react the same way with other bulls taking a horn at the downed bull.

    Nice Shooting for sure! Like ‘Envious’ said I’d like to see the video of the smaller buck “righting some wrongs” :D.

    Thanks everyone.
    I’m unable to load the video, I just took it with my phone as I walked towards him, but it was something as he would back up and ram my deer. At one point he has his head down so long I wondered if he was locked up. Lol
