Default too big to let go

to little to write home about, but a fun hunt, 3rd buck of the morning, coming in hot, with my heavy long range rifle set up, he showed at 150 yards
big body, not much rack!

Looks like a good buck to me

You'll just have to put blinders on anything under a thousand yards for that new rifle lol.

Had my AR10 6.5 creed, absolutely confidant in it to 800 yards, love that rifle but its too heavy to carry much. The Edge is coming along nicely just starting to plot long range trajectory.
