I've been shut out this year after 6 days of hard hunting but wanted to compliment you on your 6 pointer. That's a nice deer and certainly a lot bigger than most 6 that are running around out there. Congrats.

Congrats on a nice deer. Like the previous poster I've been skunked thus far this season but there are still 10 days of anterless, 10 days of muzzleloader, and about 45 days of bow season left so I still have hope.

Tagged this one yesterday morning, opening day Iowa shotgun season. Firearm was a mossberg 500 20g, rifled ported barrel , optics are bushnell 3-9x32, shooting Hornaday sst sabots. 125 yards broadside.

He only field scored 140 [I will know better #'s when we sit down and put the tape to him] , but would have ben much bigger had he not had 2 busted tines. However he was a great buck to get out of the herd, I would guess him at 5 1/2 yrs old. Plus, he looks real good in my freezer, haha.

Love seeing all the Leupold scopes. Seems like a popular brand.

Used a pair of Leupold Katmai's 6x36, to spot him. Shot was 104 yards according to the Leica, and rifle was, is, and always will be a Weatherby Vanguard .308. Load was a hand loaded 180gr Fail Safe, 44gr of 748. (It's actually my elk load, but I had a deer tag too, so what the heck). Scope is a Nikon Monarch Gold 2.5-10x50mm.

Rack scored 152 7/8, but had to cut it off because I had the bad manners of shooting him on the side of a steep and slippery rock face. Only way to get him out was the tumble/slide method - so I cut the rack off to save it. Tough to see the one point because it's hidden behind the scrub. Brow tines are 1 1/2" a piece so technically, a 5x5 with a 20" internal spread.

He was walking towards me when I shot. Bullet went a touch high, hit him in the lower jaw, bullet then travelled down the front of his neck then down the outside of his rib cage. Bang - flop...then slide, tumble, slide and tumble again. Semper Fi.

I posted this a while back, but will do so again because it was my first one :-).



Taken in Sterling City with a Swiss K-31 shooting Hornady BTSPs, 168 grain methinks. Basic Nikon prostaff scope. Not much for showing off, but that's not the point, at least not for me.

Shot him right through the heart; in fact, when we dressed him, there weren't even chunks left, just a lot of blood. Perfect kill, he was dead before he hit the ground.
