That'll do Sharpsshooter. Congrats. Did you get him yourself, or did one of the young'uns have to shoot some meat for the old man?

Wow, that's a great buck! Looks like a big body deer too...

And 261yds in warm weather is impressive, in -26 wc.... well that's flat out awesome right there! Great job 1874!


Did you get a passthrough?

They look a little smaller from 261yds. LOL.

I'd love to see one like that at any distance!

Ahh that was easy. 261 yards is really easy in -26*. Your froze solid so you can't move. Nice deer

Very nice deer. Wow that is a long shot. Did you hit where you aimed? That is some hard core hunting in those kind of wind chills. My hat would be off to you, but my head would get cold. Very nice job and nice shooting!!!

Nice buck, great job on the long shot. How much did he weigh or didn't you weigh him? Just curious....

Good shooting Chet! Thankfully, the children provided some good meat.
