I ended up shooting this fellow at about 15 yds: But if he had been farther out, I would have been ready! Oh well, sneaking up to a buck like this in the brush is very satisfying as well. Yup, a 240 MK can kill them at short range.... Overall, it was probably the best year for us: Bigger bucks have been taken, but never have they averaged so big. Anyway, I got him quickly and that left some time to get my LR fix whacking the gong.... It's all good.
