    Well done. How far, what rife and ammo did you use and what did he weigh in at; he looks like a good sized animal.

    I expect Ballibeg will have to come down from his adrenaline rush before he can answer any questions like that!!
    Great photo i must say, deer and rifle together.
    Well done Dave.

    Cheers folks,

    110m off sticks (pinged after shot). Tikka T3 lite stainless, T8 mod, 6.5x55, Federal 140gr. No means to weigh buck and not experienced enough to say whether big/small but he was in good condition for the time of year with winter coat just starting to moult off on a patch on his thoat/shoulder. No fat on kidneys.

    Was with the stalker that shot an old buck in the same spot last year so I'm guessing this buck moved into the vacant territory?

    Had my dog with me, a fox red lab. He sticks to my side when stalking and he winded the buck before I saw him. The dog didn't break at the shot and came in to the buck at heel so pleased with that as well. Frozen some salted blood for further training.
