    So after a year of trying to get him, 5 separate hunts, 9 clients, the Rockin G’s infamous blackbuck is down. @Carrie got him. He gave us the slip several times and finally made a mistake. We made a stalk on him at absolute last light and Carrie got him at about 280 yards. Caught him in a food plot courting a ewe and she flat smoked him. Congrats Carrie.

    Great job on a great buck Carrie. You should be very proud of your accomplishment on an apparently very savvy adversary.

    Way to go, girl! Who says gals can't hunt and shoot? Proof positive that they can right there.

    Having seen glimpses of that thing when we were there, I can’t believe it stood still longer than six seconds! Congratulations. Beautiful buck and a great shot!

    Really happy that it was Carrie that got him but also a little sad he’s gone! I spent a solid day and a half trying to get a shot on that guy and only got a few glimpses of him. Since my time at Rockin’ G it always made me smile knowing he was still out there!!

    I saw him a couple times also, he was running about 60mph and was gone in a flash.
