2019 Buck, my best so far...


Recommended Posts

Kentucky, Nov 9, 2019.  Harvested an eight point buck, field dressed 160 pounds, @ 106.5 yards.  46.8 pounds processed meat.

This is the second biggest rack I've harvested so far.  Two years ago I harvested a ten point rack.  But it is my best so far because it gave me the most meat from one deer that I have ever harvested, and that is the most important part of deer hunting for me, eating what I harvest.

The shot was a bang-flop.  So with my rangefinder I could determine the exact distance.  106.5 yards.  DPMS RFLR-308, gen 1, 24 inch bull barrel.  Ultramax remanufactured ammo with 165 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip (Ultramax is no more, it will be a sad day when my limited supply runs out).

I've been hunting with this rifle for about ten years, and I have been VERY happy with its performance.  It is heavy, though, with a 2.5-10x50 Krieger scope on it.  If I had to do very much walking at all, I would get a different rifle (but I sure as hell wouldn't get rid of this one!)
