what a shot. that far with a .270.wow! I have only attempted shots that far or longer at targets with my 2 700PSS's . Glad that it was a happy ending and you didn't have to track him for half the county to finish him off. When I was stationed in ND we usually had shots around 400 yards but that was clear flat land and the deer were all usually stationary.
Anyway, nice buck. Congrats.
