    Score another for Amax

    105 grain Amax from my .243. 205 yards. He ran about 40 yards and piled up. That was yesterday about 7. When I get to a computer I'll tell the story. And post pics, hopefully.
    Right now I'm kicked back and relaxed waiting to drop a doe with the 430 SJS. Damp morning, but nice temp around 50. Buddy just texted me that he shot a doe, so I may be dragging a deer soon.

    Long shot. Good shooting.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    It had antlers, hooves, and a white tail.
    It was an 8 point, but wasn't a large rack at all. given a few more years he would have been awesome. But I wasn't after antlers, and our state biologist WANT young deer taken out in that county. Used to have an antler restriction in that county. But, chronic wasting disease has been found in the area. Young bucks are good at spreading it, since they travel farther trying to establish their turf, therefore spreading it farther if they have it. (Came from the biologist, not
    Me) Anyway, any county that had antler restrictions that now are required to test for CWD, they removed the antler restriction. And not all county's had the restriction, and not all counties required the test. Mine did. They sliced the neck and took to glands to send to the lab.

    Death from even afarerer comes next year. Plans are being hatched. For the past 30 years (damn I'm getting old) I've hunted where shots averaged less than 50 yards. It's time for a change. The Death Dealer is currently being planned.

    You're partially to blame. And after deer season......coyotes. If they'd just cut those damn beans! I've got 19 rounds of Amax left. I intend to send some a long ways away.

    Re: Score another for Amax

    Damn!!! Why do I feel so Freaking inadequate right now? I haven't shot a deer since Moby was a Minner, well two years anyway. But hell, I just got my new blind out there today. Set it in the Scendaro on the opposite side from where I had my tent blind last year and the year before. It's about the same distance down the scendaro from the feeder but instead of on the west side it's setting on the east end. I have a better view of where the deer tend to come out of the dry creek bed looking from South to North.. I need to have my son in law fabricate me a feeder tripod, maybe tomorrow. I've got a feeder made up with a brand new Moultrie feeder motor and timer on a 10 gallon garbage can. I had that same can next to the oil field pond that's in the middle of where I hunt for several years. I just put a new motor and timer on it.

    Why aren't you smiling? It's a nice buck. For you, that is.

    I was just trying to hold still. I had the camera balanced on a 5 gallon bucket and set the timer. And when I smile my eyes go all funny and and stuff.

    Bullet damage. You'll have to click links. Deal with it.

    Hit the shoulder, he was quartering to me.

    Pics out of order, but I ain't fighting fotosuckit.

    One lung blew up. The heart and other lung got a hole in them. Liver had a hole in it. Which is surprising as hell considering the damage to the shoulder. Which will be the next pic.

    Hit the meaty part of the shoulder. Blew the out of it. Didn't hit the shoulder blade. My results were far more messy than Zedricks.

    Under the shoulder. Just broke one rib.

    Kind of a funny story where I took this deer. All legal, but NOT in a place one would expect. Because the internet is a big place, I ain't posting details other than it was public land. Because I don't want the other 8-10 guys who according to my Buddy "never hunt over there" to steal my idea. I'll let them keep their spot, I'll keep mine.
