Default 1 down, 2 to go

My brother in law filled his tag this evening. Robert and I finally spotted a buck and got to within 227 yards before the group took off. Not sure how much more walking I can do as my leg and lower back are flaring back up.

My brother in law dropped another dandy with the Strikerfire a 250gr Thor time time around.

If you remember the last one he got 2 years ago. This new one dwarfs it

He got him at 90 yards when we was going after a 2x2 and the big dude jumped up out of the sun flowers.

No picture yet as I am dead tired, but heres a hint. WIDE, Tall, thick and a 5x7 and we actually fit it on the jeeps luggage rack we installed.

Sounds nice. Sorry about the back. Nothing worse than back problems. Work on your core strength. Push-ups, rowing, whatever (I hate sit-ups).
