#2 for the Boy and his Creedmoor this season.
We are still after a cull 6pt but he continues to elude us. I’ve never seen him in person. Only on game cameras.
We had 11 bucks a dry doe and a doe/fawn around us for 1.5 hours. Not to mention all the deer off in the distance around 250-300yrds.
We patiently waited for the cull and he never showed. As all the deer were starting to wander off around 9am, I told the boy we would take the single doe.
He waited for her to turn broadside about 65 yrds away and he sent a 143gr ELD-X from his 6.5 Creedmoor through her chest.
You can see the impact.
She ran about 40 yards and plowed into the brush. I knew she’d gone dow there. But, made the boy track her anyway for practice.
Proud of him. He continues to do well behind a rifle.
We used an MLD-Permit for this doe and gave her to a worker on a neighboring ranch for Thanksgiving. Always a blessing to provide for others.
