My best buck ever

Was on my stand yesterday afternoon watching a few younger immature bucks when a wide 8pt with 3" tines came into the food plot. Ugly rack as he needs a few more years to get some mass and taller tines. He kept looking over his shoulder and this 12 pt walked out. At 185 yards I thought he was a nice 8pt with tall G2's and really nice brow tines. I raised the .243 win put the cross hairs on just behind his front shoulder, held two inches high of my POI and squeezed the trigger. He stumbled, ran 10 yards and piled up face first. He hit so hard he broke his front jaw. My shot was dead on and hit two inches below my point of aim.

I was shocked when I got to him. He was a 12pt with a few small drop tines off his main beam and G1's. My local game biologist stopped by and scored him just at 130. Folks that's the best buck I've ever taken.


Distance is not an issue, but the wind can make it interesting!
