260 strikes again

Was out on Saturday, last day of Pa gun season, and shot the biggest buck I have ever shot. Granted I had only shot 2 others, and both small. This one was a nice 8 point. Rough score puts him at 127 inches. Shot him with a 140 grain accubond over reloader 19 with a velocity of 2650. Shot was hard quartering away at 75 yards. Slipped it into the vitals, and he went maybe 40 yards. Exactly what I like, a quick kill! To say i was pumped is putting it mildly!
At first glance, he didn't look overly big due to his spread being only 15 1/2 inches. But he had mass (5 1/8 bases) and tine length is excellent (almost 10 inches). Only about 1 1/2 inches of deductions.

Where were you hunting? I nearly always have very good luck hunting in Perry County. My son-in-law recently tagged a big doe while archery hunting in Mifflin County.
