I shot this button buck within the first hour of the season with my new Taurus .357. I almost regretted filling my tag so soon.... almost....

Pistols are so much fun to hunt with. I've hunted everything from rabbits, squirrels, hogs and deer with my 460mag. Always puts a smile on my face. Good work!

Great job! Tell us the story, was the .357 your primary or just happen to have it on you?

One of my ladder stands faces a hay patch but has a tree-line about 30 yards to the right. Being a righty, it's hard to get a rifle around on them in a stealthy fashion when they come out there. That's when the .357 comes out.

congrats on the deer! due to rotator cuff problems I had to hang up my bow a couple of years ago. Now hunt my bow stands with a .357 Ruger Blackhawk Single Six and have successfully harvested two bucks. fun stuff!
