thought i would put some photos on of the buck i shot thursday evening. wanted to put on pics of the whole thing but camera battery died and had to deal with it before it was charged.
i have several questions for you. as i have only shot a few deer each one is a learning curve.
i shot the buck quartering away from me. very pleased with the shot broke a rib on way in took off top of heart. no exit wound though. about 60 yards away. .308 150 grain geco t mantel ammo. first buck i have had with this rifle. is this usual to not have an exit wound or is it the bullet.
want to mount the antlers but not sure how best to remove the velvet.
brow tines are 7 inchs. widest point is 27 1/2 inchs and longest antler is 25 inchs from coronet to point. is it worth getting them measured properly
