    Default My son's South Dakota buck

    Here is my son with his 4x4 South Dakota buck. He used my Weatherby 257 Fibermark with 100 gr factory ammo to take him down. He took the buck on our last day, with only about 1/2 hr of legal shooting time left. The buck was in the corn field, and was running away from him. He heard me tell a story in which I shot a Wildebeest in the rear (Texas heart shot), so he thought , what the heck and shot him in the rear. The buck dropped but was not dead, so he had to shoot him again. This is my son first big buck, so he was super happy, and still is.

    I think I said so over on the Nation, but dadgum that is a sharp looking buck with a classic rack! Congratulations to both of you on a fine deer and some pretty Ringnecks.

    Excellent, Oscar!! Congrats to you and especially the Boy. Love hunting with the Sons. Nice birds too- not a finer sport as far as I am concerned.

    I hear ya, we were hunting in the middle of the rut, and this big boy had a handful of does with him. He was king in the corn field where my son shot him. He is planning on doing a semi sneak shoulder mount; he is going to look great! I can't wait to see the mount.
