Default Mom's big buck

Mom called me at work Thurs, said she missed a big one. She doesn't miss. But she didn't tell me the whole story at the time, and I didn't sense any urgency, so I didn't leave work to look. Wish I had. At 6pm that night I talked to her, she said she thought it kicked and ran. That changes everything. I should have gone
to look. No time the past 2 days to go, so we headed out this morning.

She showed me where she was and where the deer was. We walked down behind the rock, maybe 60 yards thru thick woods and trees. Then she thought it was wrong, so I told her to go back to where she was and put me where the deer was. As I waited, I turned around and looked not 30 more yards and there he laid. She made a perfect shot thru the tiniest gap in the trees, with the scope only on 3X, at nearly 100 yards! Hit him high shoulder and he dropped like a sack of bricks. What she thought was him running was does, she neglected to tell me about earlier. She went down and followed where the does went, never knowing her buck was dead just a bit further out.

Coyotes had already gotten to him. Luckily not the head. Ass end was gone, but we decided to pay tribute to this great animal by getting it mounted. I caped it out and we'll drop it off tomorrow. Now I know what to get her for Christmas! He was a big, mature, heavy beast. Easily 225 on the hoof. Biggest deer I've laid hands on. What a shame.

But I'm proud if her. She did it by herself. Just didn't know where to go from there. At 68, I think she did pretty good. Remington Model Seven in 7-08...with (choke) factory 140 gr core lokts.

No, she found a new spot for herself and it's a real honey hole.

Congratulation to your Mother. And why(choke) those old Remington Core Lokt's have been taking down game, of all sorts, for years and will still do so. Bill K
