Didn't see anything of interest over the weekend, just some does and little bucks. Decided to go on doe patrol today, so I took the .243. Late morning, I had a couple does come running thru the woods behind me, but no chance for a shot. Then about 20 seconds later, this ol' boy came along hot on their trail. He stopped about 50 yards downhill from me, and that was all. 85gr Sierra GKHP dropped him in his tracks.

Brian, since you mentioned 85gn SGK HP, which I happen to be fond of as well. My record with it is 5 DRT, and the 6th made it 45 yards… the only difference was the 6 the bullet exited. The other 5 only had entrance wounds.

On this big buck… did the 85gn exit?

Edited:

Recipe:

Thanks, all. I was blessed to get a shot at such a nice buck. Hoping my son and brother get an opportunity this weekend.

Beautiful buck. I’d be extremely happy just to see one like that.
