After a long summer of her getting a new Browning X Bolt toped with Ziess 4.5-12-50 and some practice getting it cutting holes at the range she was ready to chase her first ever whitetail. She looked over game camera pics and picked a target buck out and said she wasnt going after anything else. We headed out Thursday to Rustys (therancher) to chase a few critters with her deer being main priority. After a little stalking and hunting Friday and me not being able to resist a spot and stalk oportunity on sika with my bow night time came. The next morning were out looking for deer moving around after the front blew in and rain cleared off when we spotted her buck bedded with some does. He was patient and alert but thought he was well hidden between the 2 live oaks. She put the 270 where it counted quarting to us at 175 yards or so and let him have it. He jumped and made it 10 yards and piled up. She also got a chance at her first and most wanted exotic which is a white fallow buck while we were there. The mix of emotions that went into this hunt and being blessed to be able to be by my wifes side as she harvested her first whitetail was more than enough to complete my season already. Thanks again Rusty and Martha out at big iron ranch for letting us come out and harvest a few great animals once again.

She's deadly with that rifle! I just love hunters who drop their animals DRT. We have a vid of her kill shot on the fallow and it's awesome!

Also to be noted, the "pretty quotient" was multiplied this time. When it's just jeremy and I out there... the ugly factor gets a little out of hand...

The beard is a big hit with the grand kids. Shaving is not my option anymore...

Looks just like my X Bolt White Gold Medallion in .270 Win. I love that rifle, it's a tack driver.

Congratulations, great job!! clap up
