Opening Day Success

Postby Thom28 » Wed Nov 15, 2017 6:05 pm

Started out kind of slow, then had groups of 2 and 3 does come out of high grass headed to woods to bed. This guy follow the last group of does out at 130 yards
The Ruger No.1 450bm using factory ammo took care of business. He went about 25 yards and piled up.

Good Luck to those headed out in the morning. I have tagged out 1 during archery season and this one. Hopefully, it will be a better day weather wise tomorrow.

Image Image I tagged the one buck I really wanted this year. Tons of trail cam pictures, had him at 68 yrds with crossbow for 15 minutes end of October but he wouldn't move. I couldn't shoot Wasn't ethical to take that shot,starting to rain was gonna rain all that night so I passed.
Shot him at 3:55 this afternoon, sat all day was in the blind at 6:00am. 20" outside 9" G2's 115 yard shot he was 40 yards in the woods, 75 yrds of food plots to the woods. I had to thread a needle to make the shot with a my Encore 450 Bushmaster. Using a reload I put together Sunday morning, 250 shockwave bonded running 2580 fps. Through a 26" fluted stainless MGM barrel. Was so happy.
