Nice work on a handsome buck! Such white antlers. That's a fair piece for a shot.

Great deer! Nice shot with a good rifle and a balanced load will get the job done every time. Congratulations. Shoot straight, rdnck.

Well to answer your question Top Dog, he would have been close to 220 lbs live weight. Our scale is in need of maintenance otherwise I could give you a concrete answer. To answer your second question he was close to 280 yards away.

Thanks, Tristan

Tristan,
He looked like 200+ lbs. 280 yards? Gosh that was a great shot!!!
I have a state forest near me which is probably the best kept secret in the state.

A couple of years ago,an archer harvested a 305 lb whitetail buck. You haul that out of the woods and it is uphill both ways!!!

Very nice deer!!!!

By the way, get a thin "O" ring to go over the sight to keep the "door closed". Looks good and works well.
