In Leesburg there is bound to be another 100 or so, just like that. Don't quit now, you guys need to put a hurtin on the does up there. I think your still #1 in deer population in Viginia. Nice buck.

You're right about that. With all the development up here (subdivisions and office complexes), The deer population has exploded. I've killed six per year (2 bucks, 4 does) for the last four years but it doesn't seem to have made a dent. Here's another picture:

And one last picture. He's got a little drop tine budding right near my thumb. First time I've ever shot a deer with one of those.

I forgot to mention yesterday that I found the bullet while I was skinning him. He was quartering slightly toward me when I shot him, so the bullet took a pretty long path from one side of the animal to the other. Consequently, I think, the round had lost a lot of energy when it hit the hide on the other side and, so, lodged there. Here are pictures for any one interested in bullet performance. The round is a Winchester Ballistic Silvertip in .270WSM, 150gr. The shot was from approx. 50 meters. Here is the front of the slug.
