What an eventful day! I kicked around the thought of driving to the deer lease all morning. Finally I just threw my stuff in the truck and started driving. I got to the lease and went straight to my stand not planning on shooting anything. 30 minutes in I had a bunch of hogs come out and I shot 2 with 1 shot. About 20 minutes before dark I spotted something waayyyyy on the other side of the hill. I pulled up my binos, saw the drop tine and immediately knew it was the buck I hadn’t had on camera since August/September. I ranged him at 452 yards and let one fly. He dropped in his tracks! Sadly he broke off one of his drops but my taxidermist can fix that. One of a kind low fence deer. [Linked Image]

NIce shot! My longest was 411 yards with a 300 Weatherby I had made. What caliber were you shooting?

That's a long shot at a deer. My back fence (pipeline) was 432 yards and dropped 70', from the hill on the neighbors place to the other side was 541 yards and dropped 114'. One of the hunters shot one standing near my back gate, he said he walked it in as he was far enough off the deer did not run off at the shot. Said it took him over 5 shots.
Well done and a heck of a double drop tine buck.

nice buck man, but I heard all you gotta do is whisper the word "creedmoor" and the deer kill over. Pullin the trigger was probably overkill hehe
