Default Water Valley Buck!

My TBH Son and Jim, one of our lease members, took two deer into B&K processing in Bronte last night. Jim had his pic taken by my Son with this TOAD. Processor told them this Buck was taken near Water Valley yesterday evening.

All the info I got but it's worth sharing....He did NOT take the Buck...just thought more than worth viewing....

I'm kinda of surprised that caliber$$ of buck would be dropped off and left at the processor. Impressive deer for sure! Even more crazy is that is not a MLD tag correct? Or have they change them?
Congrats to you guys knocking them down.

Oh I completely understood. You just usually don't see that caliber of buck at the processor intact and not caped and capped. I would have taken a pic as well. Meant no harm in my statement..

Looks like an MLD tag to me. Heck of a buck regardless, but assuming it was high fence.

I’m happy with it. I like that you can change the size of the dot and can choose between green or red.

I haven’t had it long but I’m liking it. You can get on target really quick !!!!

IMO .... It’s a good mix for self protection type scenario and short distance hunting.

I shot that doe at 45 yards with a 62grain Federal Fusion.

Hunted Thursday through Sunday and took these bucks. We hunt on almost
6k acres that hasn't been managed very well. This is our second year on it so we have decided to take out some culls in hopes of it paying off in future years.
