Sky Smile Hat Tree Fawn

This is the first WT Deer I've killed with my 6.8. I used 120 SST factory load. I shot this 2 y/o spike at about 60 yards. He was on the move and didn't come from where I was expecting. He ignored me bleating at him and just kept on trotting. I hit him right behind the left shoulder but the angle and elevation was extreme and I only hit the left lung. He disappeared into the brush but I could hear him wheezing. When I approached he stood up and I finished him with a shot to the neck. He's my cull, now I'm looking for my trophy buck. I'm blessed to have meat in the freezer. Thank you Lord.

It's tempting. It's so bad here, I believe they close the season during the ruts.
Welcome to the great state of Texas where everything is bigger including our deer season
