Nice Buck with SKS

Nice Buck with SKS

I got into my position merely before 6am, sat in bush and waited watching the deer trails I found back in early Oct. Right after I sat down, I heard a whistle. They were there! After 30 min I saw the movement, a buck and a doe. So I stood up slowly raising my SKS loaded with only one round of 123 gr hornady SP (really I only loaded one round, otherwise I might have started another jungle war ) The buck was broadsiding me but trotting slowly. I blew a whistle, he stopped trying to figure out where I was. I let the shot go, 70 yards, took out his lung artery, entering from his lung and exiting from the base of his neck. He jumped and dragged his body slowly away. I knew I got him good, so I sat down and waited for 10 mins. Turned out that he only walked another 15 yards. I figured this buck weighed about 230lbs. But the picture really didn't tell the truth very well though.
