Thought I would start a thread of asking for anyone to post their personal hunting highlights of 2009.
For me it was shooting a super representative 8 point Sika stag in the rut.
It was my 3rd year trying for one from the Dawyck bloodline and my first one was a super animal. I was very very lucky.
Please see pics below.
By the way it was taken with my .300 WSM Sako 85 using 165 grn BT's behind 75 grns of Vhit N560 (3200 fps) for anyone interested. Also text book side on profile at about 120 yards and heart/lung shot but still ran a good 70 yards!
My thanks to a super guide (Dougie) as he made a hunting ambition of mine come true.
Going again this year and think cwd222 will be joining me this time.
Looking forward to hearing/seeings pics of anyone else who wishes to add to the thread.
