I shot this buck this morning with my 15 inch 7mm08 TC Encore. I hunted this spot yesterday from a double ladder stand and had a deer cross an opening but rushed the shot and missed because I couldn't get comfortable. This morning I set up on the ground near the stand with some brush hiding me. About 7:40 I saw this buck nearing the opening and rested the Encore on my tripod. As he stepped into the opening I settled the crosshairs on his chest and squeezed the trigger. At the shot his front legs folded and it sounded like someone slapped a drum. When I got to where he was at I found some hair but no blood so I headed down the hill in the direction he went. Just inside the tree line I found the first blood,about 10 yards farther I found more blood and about 10 yards more there he was. When I went to retrieve him and ranged off from where he was standing to where I was sitting. To my surprise it was 135 yards. To say I was happy is an understatement.
