Some one suggested that I should post this in "Hunting" as its own post rather than Just in hunting pics. Im always up for a little extra publicity :) ... The post copied from hunting pics:

Well - I really landed in the middle of some luck. Lots of it, trust me. When you work from a "rolling ground blind" (The crown Vic in the picture)the right critter has to step into the right place at the right time. So..... Last Saturday my Brother in law and I were on the road at 4:00 AM to cover the 120 miles from the big city to a spot in SW MN. Brother in law went with me since hes had a ton of health issues in the last year. Since we are both kinda messed up...We kinda talked each other into going hunting at all. Father in law sprung for the Liscence fee. How could we say no... Any way about 9:30 AM I caught a little bit of movement in the tall grass to the right of the car. In the time it took me to say "deer" to my BIL the deer had moved across the field alley where the car sat. from there a few more steps onto the plowed ground I was sitting next to and into my "shooting lane" defined by the car window. From there it was slow motion.... deer in the scope...dirt over his back....(Safety drummed into my head as a kid) dot on his chest, right behind the shoulder. One of those rare occasions when you see the Deer buckle as the slug hits. Then he disappears from the recoil but I'm back on him in time to see the blood running from his side as he made a 120 yard dash before piling up. Sorry for the crappy pics- I forgot the camera so I'm relying on the skills of others. Shot was about 60 yards with my "Moosberg" using a 12 ga.Federal trophy copper slug. I am so blessed and just dumb lucky. CL

PS- if you count the main beam as a point, He's an 8. My biggest to date. BIL law was pretty stoked too. All the sudden he was out of the car and hobbling into a ground blind in the rain for the remainder of the day. (y) He told m later "it was nice to just be out and sit and just think about hunting...nothing else. Aint that the truth!

Congratulations on a beautiful buck, Troy. And, yes, I call that an eight point. It is great that you and your Brother-in-law made the effort to get out there and that your Father-in-law helped with the expenses. It sounds like a family affair with a great ending. I hope your brother-in-law gets a chance at one also.

Dan

Well OUTSTANDING!

Congratulations on a real nice buck. You did well, and seems you two had a pretty doggone good day. Enjoy the steaks - and get those antlers on the wall. They are nice!

Nice Shotgunning Troy! I’ve looked at quite a few 99’s in 250-3000 because of your appreciation for that cartridge.
Congratulations on a great hunt and buck! Yes main beam is a point in my book too!
Wishing you many more great hunts!

Thanks all! I've gotta say again...everthing just came together on this one. Grateful I am. I have missed that shot a few times :oops: ! I took some grief from the boys. :) If I had missed, my BIL would have never let me live it down. Now the pressure is on for next year. They think I'm some sort a marksman.... :lol: :lol: :shock: Part of the fun. CL
