Got my second buck of the season Sunday afternoon 11/24 right before dusk. I killed this one in Motley County, TX, northeast of Matador, near the Middle Pease River. The rifle I used on this hunt was the Barrett Fieldcraft in 7-08, topped with a Swaro Z3 3-9X36, using Jason's 145 gr Badlands Bulldozer bullet.

Sorry for the poor quality photo. I just took a hasty cell phone pic of him in the dark, as I had a lot of work ahead of me that eve with field dressing then packing up all my gear in preparation to leave for my other hunting lease the next morning.

Well done Ted, I am envious. What was the weather like during your hunt. We had a bitch of a time this year at our camp. Heavy snow moving in then the temp fell to the teens mid- week. OK for me walking but pretty frigid for the watchers.

Weather was beautiful! Clear skies, no wind (or not much wind), temps ranging from 45-60 deg F (7-15 C) that day.

How come you western boys don’t give a critter full credit for what sprouts from his skull?

Ya'll got it all mixed up................. A 4x4 is what you drive in and load your 8 pointer!! Its like some guys say "I got a 8 pointer that was 18" inside". Why short the width with inside measure?? If you say it is 18" spread and you cut a 18" circle in a board, if the rack won't go thru the hole it must be more than 18"............
 
Just sayin........Wink
Take care of Soldiers, Show em how its done and do it with em, Run to the Fight & and hold your ground! I die my men go home! If you're a NCO and this ain't you. GET OUT! GOD BLESS AMERICA!
