The good Lord blessed with the opportunity to get a shot on this guy Saturday morning. No trail camera pictures, first time we had seen him. 48 yard shot with my Ruger Redhawk chambered in 429 GNR using a 240 grain XTP.



13 points, 12" inside spread. Total 142-5/8 gross.



My setup after the dense morning fog lifted.

Dangitboy! That's a stud, Randy! Congrats on a beautiful buck! Did he come from the same area as buck you got with your 357? Man he's a beauty!

KRal,

I shot him about 100 yards from where I took the 11 pointer. I owe Gerald a lot of deer summer sausage now!

A different view.

That is a very nice buck, especially with a revolver. From the picture, it looked like a frosty morning after the fog lifted.
Great Job.

Awesome buck! He's got some serious character to his antlers. Bet he got the heart pounding when he showed up!

hell of a buck! congrats!
on a buck like that, score be damned, he is way cooler looking than the score shows (nothing wrong with a 140s buck, but yours has a whole lot of head gear!)
