I know this isn't a mid West brute like some of you guys take but this is a pig of a deer forthis area, especially public land where spikes are hard to come by,and should make the Florida record book.

I'll tell what little bit of the story there is.Me and my son (Brandon) got a late start Saturday morning andI was actually climbing upthe tree as it was getting shooting light. Before climbing I hadhung out some wildlife research trails end 307 about 80 yards to my left and right. Literally five minutes after settling in my stand I saw a deer spin around and then turn right back around with his nose up in the air. It was quite obvious it was a nice buck so I didn't waste any time couting points. I picked him up in the scope, wated a few seconds until he moved clear from the bushes and settled the crosshairs at the base of his neck and squeezed the trigger.It wasn't until I had shot him andcalmed back downI noticed the he was actually standing under the tails end I had put out andsniffing it when I pulled the trigger. My son was sitting about 300 yards away and while he couldn't see the deer he did see me shoot. Brandon called me on my phone a few seconds after I shot and I told him the good news and before I could get out of the tree he had climed down and crossed the 300 yards across the area where we were sitting. I almost stepped on his headwhen we went to look for him.I was looking for the white belly because I knew he didn't take but a few steps but he fell over in some bushes and was a little hidden. Needless to say there were high fives, holy craps, etc... etc...

I used a .270 with plane-ole Federal soft points (blue box). The bullet entered the base of the neck at the brisquit, blew the heart in half, turned the lungs to jelly, penetrated the stomach and half of the intestinesand lodged under the skin right abovethe penis. He made it about 30 yards and piled up.

He is my first deer I am going to have mounted and hang on the wall.

I know I am looking away in the first pic. [:@]
