Good Shooting indeed!

Javelina is on my list, looks like they could be real fun to hunt.

hope you get a crack at one of those big bucks

I WAS TRYING TO ADD SOME PHOTOS OF A BUCK I SHOT THIS MORNING, THE PHOTOS ARE ON THE BRAGGING BOARD BUT IN DRAFTS I COULD NOT GET THEM TO APPEAR HERE IN THE TOPIC, I WUD JUST GET THE "PHOTOPOST" INFO. ANYWAY, ON A SOUTH TEXAS LEASE I GO TO A LOT AS A GUEST, THE LAST 2 YEARS I SAW A BEAUTIFUL BUCK WITH A LOT OF POINTS. I HAD PERMISSION TO SHOOT BUT I WAS NOT GOING TO SHOOT A BUCK LIKE THAT ON AN INVITE. THIS YEAR I HAD SKIN IN THE GAME AND HAD A BUCK TAG, AND I KNEW WHICH BUCK I WANTED! THIS BUCK ("MANY POINTS") AND A HUGE MAIN FRAME 10 WITH A KICKER WERE THE 2 APEX BUCKS ON THE RANCH AS PER THE CAMERA SURVEY. FOR EVENING HUNTS I WAS USING A 10 INCH FA 454, AND FOR MORNING HUNTS I WOULD SWITCH TO THE 45 COLT BISLEY HUNTER.

I SAT IN THE SAME BLIND, THE BLIND WHERE I HAD SEEN MANY POINTS IN YEARS PAST. HE WAS AN OCCASIONAL VISITOR TO THE FEEDER BUT NO WHERE NEAR A REGULAR. I SAT AT THIS BLIND 6 OR 7 TIMES THIS MONTH (DECEMBER 2019) AND WAS SEEING DOES, FAWNS, A YOUNG 8 AND A BIG 150 CLASS MAINFRAME WIDE 11, BUT NOT "MANY POINTS". I KEPT HOPING TO SEE HIM ON A MORNING HUNT SO I COULD USE THE HUNTER BUT WOULD NOT HAVE PASSED ON HIM IN THE AFTERNOON WITH THE 454. THIS WEEK THE QUAIL HUNTERS WERE AT THE LEASE, AND THEY CAN GET THE DEER TO MOVE AROUND, THEN THURSDAY THE DAUGHTER OF A LESSEE KILLED THE WIDE 11, SO I AM THINKING MAYBE "MANY POINTS" MAY MOVE IN AND SHOW UP. NO SHOW YESTERDAY AFTERNOON BUT EARLY THIS MORNING HE SHOWED UP. IT WAS LEGAL SHOOTING HOURS, BUT IT WAS DARKER THAN I PREFER PLUS WAS IT WAS OVERCAST AND MISTY. I THOUGHT IT WAS HIM BUT THE LIGHT WAS REAL BAD AND I WAS NOT SURE. HE WAS EATING SOME XTRA CORN I HAD PUT OUT AROUND THE FEEDER PEN. FINALLY HE TURNED AND I ID'ed HIM BY A DISTINCTIVE KICKER ON HIS LEFT SIDE. HE WAS FEEDING, BROADSIDE, AT 90-95 YARDS, SO WITH MY HUNTER, AND SCOPE SET AT 5x, I SHOT AT HIM. I THOUGHT I AIMED AT THE SHOULDER BUT IT WAS A DOUBLE LUNG SHOT WITH COMPLETE PENETRATION USING THE 250gr SPEER DCHP. HE RAN AT THE SHOT AND A VERY SHORT TIME LATER I SEE MOVEMENT DOWN THE SENDERO. I GLASS WITH MY BINO's AND IT LOOKS LIKE A DEAD DEER IN THE ROAD.

I WAS COOL AND CALM THRU THE SHOT BUT REALLY STARTED SHAKING AFTER THE SHOT. I WAITED A FEW MINUTES AND GOT DOWN TO CHECK. APPROX 60 YARDS FROM WHERE I HIT HIM THERE HE WAS DEAD. HE RAN AROUND 90 YARDS TO GET TO WHERE HE FELL. THIS BUCK HAD A LIVE WEIGHT OF 170lbs, GROSS SCORE OF 170.75, MAINFRAME 12 WITH 3 XTRA POINTS PER SIDE. EVEN IF I DEDUCT A PEEWEE "RING" POINT HE WAS STILL JUST OVER 170 GROSS AND A BONAFIDE 17 POINTER. A GREAT MORNING, AND WHAT A FIRST DEER KILL FOR THE HUNTER.

HERE ARE PICTURES FROM THE BRAGGING BOARD (I WAS LEAVING OUT A . WHICH WAS SCREWING ME UP).

LEST YOU THINK I AM FAST WITH THE "TAPE MEASURE", THE GAME MANAGEMENT PROGRAM ON THIS RANCH REQUIRES LIVE AND FIELD DRESSED WEIGHTS, B&C SCORES, PHOTOS AND AGING THE BUCK via THE LOWER JAW TEETH, BUT I DIDN'T NEED A TAPE MEASURE TO KNOW THIS BUCK WAS SPECIAL. INSIDE SPREAD WAS ONLY 14.5 INCHES BUT THE MASS WAS INCREDIBLE.

SO FAR 2 SHOTS ON GAME WITH THE BISLEY 45 COLT HUNTER AND 2 KILLS. WILL CHECK THE RIB CAGE ON THE BUCK TOMORROW WHEN HE IS SKINNED OUT TO SEE IF THERE IS ANY SIGN OF BULLET BLOW UP. THE VAQUERO (COWBOY) THAT GUTTED HIM FOR ME SAID HE FOUND NO BULLET FRAGMENTS IN THE INNARDS. LEST YOU THINK I CAN'T GUT MY OWN DEER, I HAVE GUTTED AND PROCESSED MANY DEER OVER THE YEARS, BUT NOW I DO NOT MIND TIPPING THE VAQUERO $20 OR SO TO DO IT, PLUS IT HELPS THEM OUT. I WISH I HAD NAILED THIS BUCK IN THE SHOULDER BUT I DOUBLE LUNGED HIM. SO FAR I AM LIKING THESE SPEER DCHP 250gr BULLETS. NEED TO CHRONO THE LOAD (27grs OF 296) BUT I AM GUESSING 1,300fps PLUS, MAYBE 1.400fps. ALSO, SO FAR I AM REALLY LIKING THIS RUGER BISLEY HUNTER.

Nicely done, Rey. As tight as he is it?s hard to see all of his character, he definitely crammed a lot into his rack.
