    unfortunately it took over a week to find him. The coyotes and coons found him first of course. He was only about 200 yards from where I shot him, but it was the opposite direction of the way he left the area. No blood trail at all and from what was left of him, it looks like the bullet went completely through. It was about at 250 yard shot with a 270. What do you think he will score? Inside spread is 18.5".

    Yes, I tagged him. I was using 130 grain Remington Corelok in .270. Hit him a little far back, about 6-8 inches behind the shoulder.

    I am going to get him scored, but haven't yet. I will let everyone know the outcome.

    He's a good 'un. Congrats on finding him. I know that was a long week. My guess is he'll score between 140" - 145". :up:

    I thought no one lost deer with a gun. GLad you didn't shot him with archery.
  14. Beautiful rack! I'd say he"ll score between 148-152".
