My wife and I recently celebrated our 10 year anniversary. She has shown some interest in shooting an axis at the ranch I manage in Mason. We have some great deer this year and when I saw this guy growing out I new he would be a great first buck for her. After getting the green light from the boss I got to work putting a hunt together. It took a few trips but she finally got him Saturday evening. It is so green they are not coming out to feed much. I had to pattern him over the last few weeks and hope we could catch him crossing a pasture in the afternoon. A well placed bail of alfalfa in the pasture slowed him down long enough for her to hammer him with my 300 wsm at 177 yards. She made a great shot. To say I am proud of her would be an understatement. His body was absolutely enormous. My scale broke but I would put him over 250. His bases were almost 7 inches with 28 inch beams. I need to find someone to freeze dry the velvet on the antlers now so I can mount him.

Here she is waiting for him to show.


It took some doing getting my timer set on my camera but I finally got this good pic of both of us.
