I was fortunate to tag this buck on November 4th on my oldest son's property. I took a doe from the same stand on Halloween.

Finally pounded one with one of my 6.8s... it was the 10.5 SBR with reddot-3x-magnification and @ 40yd it was dead nuts on, 10yd run and drop dead

It was Doe-Only 3 day weekend in MO... took a 85lb (after gutted), entry was from left and exit was straight across, right behind front shoulder, S&B110PTS

With only a 3xMag @40yd I was just hoping to be close to where I had the red dot on her... it was perfect.

My son went with me to our ranch. These times are special. We were pre-rut in South Texas. He took my 16” ARP, but snuck the 6mm along! Couldn’t help himself, 6mm it was. He gonna learn! Nice cull; 7 pt 22” wide.
He’ll be taking the 6.8 as we start night hunting hogs.

ARx3, that's a great deer. How many points on that thing? And what part of the state was that in?

I took a friend and his 16 year old son out last Sunday and finally got the son on a small 8 pointer after about two miles of spot/stalk type hunting. He was pretty dead set on something with horns because at one point we were within 40' of 10 whitetail does and he passed. Pretty sure his dad was even more excited than he was.

When we gutted it I was very surprised at what a 62 grain Federal Fusion bullet does on game. Shot just in front of the shoulder, somewhat quartering towards us it left nearly a 1/2" hole in the front of the ribs before it hit heart and partial lung.

One of these years I'll get around to finding another pic hosting site to use.

Going back out this weekend in the hopes to get a good buck.

I did take this pic last time out which turned out pretty good. Yes i know its aimed too low. It was hard enough getting my phone lined up to get a clear picture.

I hope elk are allowed. I got her a few days ago on December 31st. My buddy standing next to her is 5 foot 10. Those are 10 foot ceilings I think .

Already shown in a previous posting of mine talking about effective range of 10.5” barrel but thought I’d go ahead and stick in this thread too

My son got this doe on the next to last day of gun season here in Ohio. It was a very good shot from a Marlin 44 mag, through the neck, liquified the lung, went up and shattered the spine, followed the rib cage to lodge just under the skin at the base of the ribs. No damage to the meat at all.

Rebarreled 308. Shooting 125 grain Nosler accubonds @ 3050 from a 20 inch barrel. DRT performance on this 8 point.

I’ve been lurking on this forum for a while. Just saw this thread and thought I’d share my story from last year.

I got this guy right before Christmas. It was a stormy day and just about to clear up. He came out about 110 yds away and looked at me. I saw his horns and immediately shot him in the chest. I used a .308 bolt action and 165 gr Fusion ammo. He dropped like a rock and kicked a couple of times.
