Went hunting at the Ranch earlier this week. In a pop up hidden in the brush under a huge oak tree. Two shooting lanes going east and west. Was watching some does out at 140y and turned to see something walking through some dead fall. Saw his back, then part of his head, then the rack. Typical 8pt Texas Hill Country buck. Looks to be about 4 y/o and he weighed at least 150lbs. Getting him in the bed of the truck alone was a chore. Shot was at around 75y with my Savage 10fp, .308, using 180gr Hornady SST at 2650fps. Damage was concentrated and extensive. Entered right at the heart and sheared the top off the heart. Very clean.

    Great job. Looks very much like my first deer in GA and I was smiling too.
