Default Wife does it again

For the third year in a row, my wife put the smack down on a buck before me. Haven’t been seeing much movement so we went and sat on a big oat field next to the river. After about an hour and a half this guy comes out behind a couple doe. Watched him for a bit and he walks back into brush. Shifted our focus back to the other side of field for a few minutes. We look over and out he comes again. He finally stopped at about 180 yards and she dropped him with her .223. Very proud to say the least

Congratulations to the wife! He's solid for sure and been mixing it up from the looks of the antlers.

55 grain Hornady TAP out of a Mossberg dad gave her for Christmas last year. Don’t remember exact model but it’s a sweet shooting little gun. We’ve shot deer out just past 200 yards with it. Tack driver for sure
