Very nice Virginia buck! If I manage to shoot one that nice during next year's firearm season I'll consider it a success.My first year with my 6.8 was uneventful. Year two only made 10 minutes into firearms season. Not much of a story. I heard the proverbial "twig snap", and saw him coming from my left. Shot him at 20 yards, and he ran 30 yards and stopped. I'm certain he was about to fall but I have him one more and he fell without moving. I wish I hadn't shot again, because those two SST's pretty much destroyed the front end of that deer. Either way, a nice buck for Virginia, though I had 3-4 bigger bucks on camera.
Nice kill!!!The Axis Deer are free-ranging in Stonewall, Texas and I shot this 205lb Axis buck on my buddy's farm. Herd of 200 plus eating on his wheat so we took a total of eight which I shot four of and this big boy jump up and only 75 yds away.
I used the 6.8 loaded with the 120 SST's:
