Got a buck last nite

Recommended Posts

This buck is special to me. It's my first with my .44 Blackhawk, and it's the first kill from the land we bought back in Febuary. Hunting time was more precious than in years past now that I have a 2 month old at home. I'm blessed to have a wife who told me to keep hunting even tho she's not getting any sleep with an infant with a cold and working 12 hour shifts. So I definitely owe her a lot. Hopefully a good supply of burger and roasts make up for it!

 

Thanks for looking guys. Hope the pic turns out good...had a tough time resizing it.

Thank you Bobby. Nothing really spectacular. I have a brush blind built on the edge of a meadow where several high speed trails come together. I dumped a bag of rice bran and put out a mineral block to stop em.

 

He came out as I was standing up and stretching my back so I had to slowly sit down and pick my peice back up. I had had several close encounters with his twin who has a broken off right antler. I wanted to make sure it wasn't him so when he raised his head up and I verified he was intact, I eased the trigger back, centered the post and dropped the hammer.

 

Last I saw of him he was running low with his tail down and disappeared into the treeline. Heard him running thru the dead cedars, stop then heard a loud crash.

 

The shot from my blind to where be stood was about 40 yards and from where he stood to where he died was about 60 yards.

 

As for loads, again, nothing special. My cylinder is loaded with Hornady 240 grain XTP and 300gr XTP. Factory ammo...I don't shoot this gun enough to handload. This was the first time this pistol was fired since a posse hunt in august 2012.

 

Bullet entered and removed a thumb sized peice of the heart . Never found an exit hole or the round.

A wife that asks you to hunt and a two month-old baby to boot is a pretty good combination. The deer is your bonus for being a good husband and father. Enjoy it all.
