Nice Buck Don! I would not hesitate to shoot him. Looks like he has a really pretty cape too. I'd say he was worth a little nick on the digit Sounds like you also made a new friend, always a plus.
Thanks BobT ! I took him to taxidermist yesterday. I won't tell you how much. I just want to put him above my Ca. bighorn from San Gorgonio wilderness 2003. I going to try to get some pics on here from another guy I met up there with a tag from Morro Bay, Ca. . He called me this morning and finally got the goat he washunting for 3 days. Unreal story. One smart loper. I had him give me the measurements. I rough scored it at 86 in . min....State records or in order 89,87,87, 86, 85 and a bunch of 84's. all with out adding fractions. He's a happy boy. It's lengths were17 1/4 and 17 3/8. Bases 8 in. , prongs 6 in. A toad for sure. A lttle nick huh ? I almost posted a pic. I still can't bend it much. Crazy glue !
Now we need a pic of that rifle with no obstructions.
Picture of my rifle ? Now you sound like me ! Just a Stainless Rem 700 300 RUM w/H&S Presicion stock, Burris 6x24x50 Black Diamond ,Timney trigger and magnabrake muzzle break. Kicks like a 308. The load I shoot...I won't tell you the groups I get with my handlaods but am comfortable to 500 yds on deer and antelope. Elk are a bigger target... Archer ? And you are interested in rifles ? Ha ha ! I hunt archery also and have taken more elk with bow than rifle ! Elk with a bow is the ultimate ! I'm trying to download pics of my digital camera to me laptop to post . loaded Kodak program last nite but it jackin with me. You can see my ugly mug and rifle !
