Awesome buck. Due to a massive heart attack I was not able to join the rest of our crew in West River this week. The other three took bucks in the same class as yours. It has been quite a year for antlers in South Dakota despite EHD problems. Same holds true in North Dakota. Congrats on you buck!!
on the sherman it is the first deer i have shot with it and am impressed, wanted to shoot my antelope with it, but things happened to fast and shot with a different rifle my trusty 257 dgr, also a awesome caliber, i will be shooting a elk on monday in wyo with the 6.5 sherman, and hope to find a good muley yet in the black hills. the burris scope laser has been flawless in testing, took a bit of shooting and tweeking to get the correct drop # programed in started at 133 and ended at 110, set at 750yds, i set up 8in steel gongs 200,300,400,500,600,700yrds and lasered and fired and was on all of em. the one 1 non res tag took 7yrs pref this year, he camped next to me, and is still up there as far as i know. i has 3 res pts and got lucky. since only 10 res tags....here is the first buck i shot in the park in 2016 with the 257 dgr and 100gr ttsx at 3300 fps, its a necked down 260 rem with no fire forming
You better have gutted, loaded the deer in your truck real quick and be out of there. If not, kind of hard to explain to a game warden how lucky you got shooting him that close to the road. Lol.
A game warden I know in MN, told me that they always look for people who are field dressing deer next to access points to public lands. Says it means one thing- deer was shot on side of road, loaded and brought here.
Nice rifle and Awesome deer.
