Deer weren't moving where I was at on Sunday morning, and I had passed on several nice bucks Friday and Sat waiting for a shooter..
So I climbed up a big hill with a view of a field that's about 3/4 of a mile square with scattered trees

I spotted a nice buck about 1/2 mile out headed for a tree line, no doubt, it was a shooter..

Climbed down the hill, walked about a ¼ of a mile through the trees to the edge of the treeline started glassing the field..
I couldn’t see the area of trees he was headed to and s0 I belly crawled about 300 yards to the top of small hill to a lone tree to get a view of the tree area he was headed..

Started glassing and spotted him about 300 yards to my right, just as I was about to pull the trigger he starts off on a trot, at a 45 degree angle, headed straight towards me!

He paused about 100 yards out and a high shoulder shot and down it went, DRT, never even wiggled J
The culmination of a fantastic weekend of hunting.

Popped a doe in the neck at 346 yards Friday evening in very low light.

Saturday at daybreak there were a group of hogs working out about 200 yards, I wanted a smaller one as they are easy to deal with and taste good, then I got greedy and decided I wanted two hogs.

So, I waited until I could get two of them lined up perfectly and then put one right behind the ear of the first one, it exited and hit the 2nd one in the same spot!
Two down!

I definitely have faith in the new rig.
Nosler Trophy Grade in 280AI topped with a Ziess Victory FL 4-16x40 with their AVS elevation turret system to dial in the exact yardage.  Nosler 140g Accubond load.

My favorite part of the weekend was hanging out with my dad and brother.
Reminiscing of old hunting stories Saturday night with a little Crown Royal....

I don't know that an outing could be much better than all of that!
