Went out Saturday morning and got lucky. I shot this one at 0630 North of Leesburg, VA, on wet, overcast and rain-threatened hunt. Just as the light got good enough to shoot something, this bruiser walked out of the woods and down the hill toward my stand. I'm pretty sure he was tailing some does I'd heard splashing through the creek minutes earlier. He's the best buck I've ever shot, and I also found the bullet later when I was skinning him.
Here are some pictures of the bullet. It's a .270WSM 150 grain, fired from approx. 50 meters. The deer was quartering slightly toward me, so the slug took the long way to the other side, then got trapped in the hide.
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
