1st buck of 2013 for me at 06:20 am today.
will be mounting him 'in velvet'. probably 60yds, off sticks. .243 85g partitions. perfect H/L shot, ran 30yds then dropped. lovely buck, probably 2-3yrs of age. almost didn't shoot him, just enjoyed watching him, but then I started realising 'I'm not here to take pictures'! ha ha ha.
can't believe it, even got my heart all racing and such on bringing the rifle up shows it's been a few months since the last buck ay..LOL
