Default Thanksgiving Hunt in Sonora

Hunted in Sonora the weekend after Thanksgiving out at Rafter W Ranch and ended up killing my first axis and a pretty decent WT, my biggest to date. Wanted to share.

Does the Axis have an extra point or is that his ear?

Awesome bucks! Love the mass and drop time on the WT. What caliber is your 77? Love those guns I have two of them 270 and 243.
