Something else old school ,when rifles were mounted on pretty wood
When men were men and a 2” shift at 100yds from humidity in the stock didn’t matter because you had a fixed 4 power scope and you were ground hunting anyways and could just get closer.

I want to see you make a full recovery and get back in the woods @Grago i still suck with your turkey call 😅

Great bucks Gary. I wish I was closer to you. I’d venture you’ve forgotten more about deer hunting than most of us will ever know. I like see those pics with the rifle in the rack. Shows me you’re proud of your accomplishment and you should be. Always a plus when it’s a beautiful rifle as well. Thanks for sharing with us.

Came across these Gary. I think I’ve put a gun in the rack of every buck I’ve killed since I was a kid.

That Remington 700 of yours looks considerably better than the modern rifles. I’m certain I have a 25-06 Remington 700 in the rack “picture” of my first big buck that’s mounted in my living room.

I was reading your story Gary. Tell me about that follow up shot you put on him. Was he standing again or running? Did u just throw a Hail Mary that 2nd shot or was you attempting the neck lol.

He was standing, broadside, at about 10 o ' clock, to me, I heard a little something, and i turned to look, and he was standing there broad side, and turned his head the other way. First time , i even knew there was a deer within 5 miles of me, When he turned his head, i put the cross hairs behind his shoulder, and shot, He just kinda flinched and took off, still broad side, I just worked the bolt, threw up the gun and saw hair, and shot again. That one drilled him in the neck.When i got to him, i saw the 1st shot was perfect, he was running dead, but i didnt know that. 2nd shot was a death shot also, but till i got to him, i had no idea where i had hit him, that shot was pure luck. From the 1st time, i seen him, till i shot the 2nd shot, probably wasnt 15 seconds. Good i guess, i just heard something, and turned around and he was there, i had to shoot free handed, and if i had seen him coming, may have been to tore up to have hit him, he wasnt very far from me.
