My little man has been after this buck since youth season. We have seen him every weekend, but he just wouldn't stay broadside long enough for him to get on him solid or a doe would step in front of him. We went out to lease on Tuesday night for the holiday weekend and didn't see him until Saturady afternoon I was starting to think one of the neighbors had shoot him. He came in early and solo so Cade was able to take his time and made a great shot with his .222. He bolted and ran about 25 yards and piled up. I haven't released an arrow yet, but my season is complete. His new favorite saying is "Big Buck Down" we heard it every 10 minutes for the rest of the weekend. When I told him before the season he could shoot a 6 or 7 point this year for his first I had know idea this toad was going to be the first 6 we saw.

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
