I shot this guy this morning in between the rain showers on the edge of a pine thicket overlooking 2 draws in a big stand of cutover. He came out of the pines behind a spike, crossed the road and started easing down into one of the draws where I lost him, before browsing back up to a bench on the side of the ridge near the top. I knew after watching him through the binos that he was mature. Had a ton of grey on his head and face and a thick, swollen neck that seemed to just flow straight to his belly. I took a shot at 200 yds and he dropped in his tracks. I didn't realize he was busted up a little until I got to him. He had scars all over his neck and top of his back. I am very proud of this buck even though he isn't the best buck, rack wise. It's been a great year for me and I am tagged out on bucks now.

Hardin Co. 9 pt
Rem 700 .270
Leupold vx-1 3x9 x 40
Hornady 140 gr BTSP interlock
200 yds

Here is the bullet I pulled out that had broken the skin and was practically hanging out of the shoulder.

I'd rather be judged by 12, than carried by 6.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
