When I first opened the pic, I thought that little sapling was part of the deer's rack...


Nice one.

What gun setup is that?

Thanks guys! The gun is an 11-87 and the stock is modified with a little dense foam taped to the stock, so I get a better cheek weld and eye alignment.

Nice buck! Give us the "Paul Harvey Rest of the Story". How many yards was the shot? DRT or was there tracking involved? What kind of slugs did you use? Did you want my address for the shipment of the back straps?
