Went with the family this weekend to the family ranch. Took wife with me in the blind hoping to let her shoot something decent. Around 5:45pm nothing except a few whitetail doe around I started to worry the timing was bad.

She starts to doze off and I see movement to my left about 150yds out. Sure enough this Axis buck is slowly making his way to the feeder. Thinking he was gonna stop and eat I told my wife to wait. Instead he walks past the feeder and starts heading into some dense brush. I let out a "Whoop!" to get him to stop. He stops but is quartered away. BOOM! I see with my binocs the bullet hits him in his upper back and he drops. She gets up asking, "Did I get him? Did I get him?" As she does he gets up and starts limping away into the brush. I tell her to chamber another and put another in him. Shes does and hist right behind the shoulder! He stumbles and falls for good! Both shots ended up exiting about 2" apart at the opposite shoulder.

My wife isn't a typical hunter as this was only the second time she has pulled the trigger on an animal in 5 years. And what an animal it was! She went from chewing my butt off about having so much money tied up in Taxi work and processing to telling me how hes gonna be mounted and where hes gonna be in the house. A friggin amazing experience to share with her. Never seen her that excited before in anything we've done.

He measured 28" but is definitely a trophy in our book. Has nice mass as well.

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