Way ahead of you! Mount should be ready in about 5 months. And the pan sausage, salami and snack sticks are fantastic!

That's an exit wound...shooting downwards from the blind striking him on the right side, lower shoulder, about 100 yards away. Caliber is .270 WIN, using Hornady SSTs over IMR4064. I thought I missed him because I saw the bullet hit the dirt behind him, but he expired about 30 feet from impact.

First Time Hunting in Six Years...

And I was fortunate enough to be able to harvest this fine buck!!

I couldn't believe my luck...we got out to the blind, and within an hour I saw three small does and this buck. He just moseyed on out like he owned the place (he probably did), and since it was early in the season he wasn't looking for cover. Used my own handloads too, so that was an extra measure of satisfaction. He was 93 pounds dressed...about right for South Texas deer. Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hunting to all!
