~200 yds
25-06 100 grain

I have had pictures of this deer since July. He was frequenting the area pretty often in bow season, but never while I was in the stand. Have not had a picture since October so I figured he had ventured across the fence or gone into hiding mode. Saturday evening I noticed him milling behind my feeder (feeder is 195 yds). He walked up to it, took a look around and turned around back the same direction he came from. I had my scope on him and when I had a slight quartering away angle I took the shot. He ran 40-50 yards down towards the bottom of a canyon and piled up. Very unique deer, fortunate to have taken him. Any guess on the score?

Very nice!! Lot of character in that rack for sure up

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

that rack is one of a kind for sure, that almost deserves a full body mount
