My Man John bagged himself a 8 Point 165lbs Dressed, Ogontz Swamp Buck 160 Yards Surgical shot with a Winchester bolt action 308 and 3x magnification set Bushnell 300 scope.
John says “shortly after the sun broke I caught the glistening of his antlers, and set up a point where I thought he would pass, and set up my shot.” Continuing, “It passed and BANG..” .. down with no chase.
With evidence of a large coyote population in the area, he moved as fast as he could to get his cart and then get back to his kill. Half way through the return trip the cart fell apart because of a defective bolt, and he had to haul both manually. Of course the thick swamp with fallen trees, and water holes made it more of an effort.
He says he earned this buck.
Look at the spread on those tines.
