Default 2008 Opening day VA rifle kill

Someone gimme a score, I didn't rough him when I took him to the taxi later that day. He is 15" wide and his longest tine I believe is 9", but I might be wrong, it's been awhile since I've seen him. Btw, it was an 85 yd shot with a Winchester Model 70 in 243 (my all time favorite gun). Dropped him in his tracks as he came out of a bedding area. Didn't mean to hit him where I did, but there is an odd connection with this gun and as soon as the x hairs came into the 'vital' (he was 1/4 ering to me) the gun went off and he hit the deck. That's my oldes in the picture. She is having issues with understanding why I am not taking her bowhunting since she got her first taste of hunting last year....
