Filled my 2021 tag. Best whitetail I’ve shot, found him sleeping, shot him at 503yds, ranged at 580, dialed up, shot over top, I thought, but jacked another one in and shot again, seen a flash of snow behind him, jacked third shot in, he’s still looking around, so I re ranged him then corrected my dial and dropped him. There was a tree row behind him I think I must’ve bounced the trees instead. Can’t stress the importance of getting a good range. Used my 7rem mag and 180hybrids, once I got up on him, I had skinned one just over his withers, but the shot that dropped him broke his shoulder and punched through breaking the far shoulder too.
