    First buck and 6 pointer of 2011

    Shot this chap on Saturday, was out at 04:30, but didn't see/shoot him until 07:46AM. Put the picture of where I shot him from, he came up behind the trees feeding on buds, when he came between the top two trees I put a H/L broadside shot downrange which dropped him on the spot, not a move - perfect used my .243 with 87g HPBT's.

    I'm ageing him at 3 to 4 years old based on his condition and tooth wear, as well as the antlers. He was just over 30kg, with LOTS of of fat deposits.Attachment 6944Attachment 6945

    Very pleased

    30kg is based on my best guestimate un-gralloched. Sorry, should've specified earlier. I am very good at guessing weight, usually carry a lot of 25kg feed bags around, and this chap was deffo a good 5kg heavier than one of those, but like I said, ungralloched. The venison fillets are VERY nice and big, will make quite the feast :-) just finished the head this morning, will let the hydrogen peroxide dry off and post a picture when I get home from work.
