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.

****, nice bucks. Where do you hunt?? All four of those bucks are bigger then the biggest buck I ever took. So job well done. Forget about the range, it's results that matter.

Thanks, Roadrunner. Those were taken on our ranch in South Central Montana, near Absarokee.
